About the 28th Annual National Health
In 2021, the National Health Information Awards celebrates 28 years of honoring high-quality consumer health information. The National Health Information Awards is organized by the Health Information Resource Center (HIRC), a national clearinghouse for professionals who work in consumer health fields. Other HIRC programs include the Digital Health Awards.
All materials and/or programs developed and/or distributed between
January 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020 are eligible for the 2021 competition.
The materials or programs submitted must have been developed
for use by consumers, not health professionals. Due to the continuing Covid-19 crisis, entries for this year must be submitted in a digital format: either upload a PDF copy or provide a direct link (URL) for your entry.
Entry Categories and Divisions:
There are 21 entry categories and 17 entry divisions for the 2021 competition.
$65 per entry • $55 for entries submitted by 3/31/21
(Certain categories require an extra fee.)
April 23, 2021 • March 31, 2021 early entry deadline
Gold, Silver, Bronze and Merit certificates will be awarded by Class, Division and Category. Using a rating scale of 1 to 100 points, a panel of consumer health experts from across the nation will judge the entries based on content, format, success in reaching the targeted audience and overall quality. All judges’ decisions are final. Winners will be announced in late summer.
