MORE Awards

The Media Orthopaedic Reporting Excellence (MORE) Awards — created by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons — recognize and honor efforts by journalists that further the public’s understanding of musculoskeletal health issues and encourages healthy behaviors in the care of bones and joints. 

2021 marks the 15th anniversary of the AAOS MORE Awards and we are excited to open the entry period later this year. From heart-warming patient stories to perspectives on orthopaedic innovations and treatment options, we look forward to recognizing an array of bone and joint-health news stories.

Additional information about the MORE Award program guidelines, eligibility and the judging criteria will be posted in the coming months.
