Extract from the jury's decision
It is not an easy task to raise society’s interest abaout facts and figures of a biomedical research report. This publication skilfully presents research activities and data in a contemporary and attractive fashion and refrains from applying elements which might be in contrast to the seriousness of the subject. The content is clearly, objectively, transparently and optimistically arranged and free of any unnecessary artifice. The professionalism of this creative work inspires confidence in the efforts of childhood cancer research.
