Sickle Cell Infographic Scoops National Award

The competition aimed to recognise the ways people funded and supported by the NIHR can ‘get digital’ with their research, whilst raising awareness of research at the same time. Entries were invited across five categories – video, photo, infographic, online community and website. Despite it being the awards first year, competition was strong; there were 165 entries to the competition, and 2251 public votes.

The infographic, which highlights and explains themes from our recent research on Sickle Cell Disease, was chosen as winner of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) ‘Let’s Get Digital’ Awards in the Infographic category

Expert judge Robin Turton, Director at More Tea Design Ltd, said:

“The winning infographic has a really accessible quality – the sense of a scene being created invites the reader in, alluding to the idea that ‘people think nothing’s wrong’. It’s colourful in design and well suited to the broad public audience it’s intended for – congratulations to the team!“
