Latest DPH Annual Report Competition
The ADPH has held a competition for the best DPH Annual Report each year since 2004. Entries are judged by an independant panel who look for readability, accessibility and innovation as well as relevant and challenging content. Lessons from the competition can be read in Nicola's Ten Top Tips. Latest winners are listed below with previous winners here.
The DPH Annual Report is a major opportunity for advocacy on behalf of the health of the population and as such can be extremely powerful both in talking to the community and also to support professionals. In order to achieve maximum impact we suggest the use of the Faculty of Public Health guidelines for the production of reports.

2nd prize: Sheffield - for a comprehensive accessible web-based report (there is a hard copy summary version);
