Gain your biggest audience ever: submit a “Bright Lights” nomination!

Nominate your team, partnership or colleague for a Bright Lights Award and gain your biggest audience ever.

The AFHTO 2018 Conference Awards ceremony will be held at lunchtime on October 24, 2018. This means it’s open to all attendees at the AFHTO 2018 Conference. That’s an audience about three times larger than past awards dinners.  

Past winners have also:

  • Received media coverage
  • Been presented as shining examples with local and provincial political leaders
  • Been profiled in Health Quality Ontario’s Quorum and social media, with 3,775 views total on Quorum alone
It’s also an opportunity to raise your profile even if you don’t win. Nominations are some of the best resources we use to publicise your work with external stakeholders and the public at large. Bright Lights tweet

You can:

  • Nominate your own team –you should be proud of your own work.
  • Apply even if you didn’t send in an #AFHTO2018 abstract.
  • Nominate your initiative if you’re not an AFHTO member but work in partnership with one.
