The aim of the British Dental Editors Forum is to encourage high quality and ethical publication and communication in dentistry. Each year it recognises the achievement and future potential of young dental communicators and writers through its Young Communicator of the Year Award. All young communicators, who were under 35 years of age and were living in the UK at the time their communications were published, are eligible to compete for a first prize of £500 and a second prize of £250. These prizes are sponsored by the British Dental Industry Association. This year, Binish Khatoon won the first prize for a paper which was published in the British Dental Journal. For the first time a prize (the second prize) was awarded not for a paper but for an online presentation.

Young Communicator Award winners

(L-R): Dr Mona Nasser, Mr David Croser (MPS and BDEF Council Member), Miss Binish Khatoon.
