Win the most prestigious urology prize in the world and have your innovative ideas recognized among those of the greatest urologists of the past 30 years.
The Diokno-Lapides Essay Contest (formerly the Jack Lapides Essay Contest) has been expanded this year to include submissions covering the entire field of voiding dysfunction. Essays will be judged by an independent panel. The winner will be honored among peers at the AUA National Meeting in May and be awarded $3,000.
Who can apply? The contest is open to all urologists, residents and fellows throughout the world, in both the private and academic setting. If the primary author is not a urology trainee or urologist, the essay must be co-authored by a urologist and sponsored by the Department or Section of Urology.
Deadline for submission is December 4, 2015.
The essay can be the work of an individual or a group. If the essay is submitted by a group, the first author will be considered the primary author and receive all correspondence. If the winner is a group, the primary author will be expected to present the paper and officially receive the award.
A cover letter must accompany each essay, which must include:

If the entire essay is too large to send as one file, divide the material and label sections and attachments clearly.

Essays will be judged by an independent panel that will be blinded as to the essayist and institution. If the judges consider the pool of essays to be unworthy, awards may not be given and the award will be added to the next year's prize.
