Make a note in your diary now…. PIME 2009 will take place from 15 to 17 February 2009 in Scotland’s beautiful capital city, Edinburgh!

 The planning phase for next year’s unique international conference for nuclear communicators has already begun and we have started the process of putting together the conference programme. We would like to ask you to invest some of your precious time in helping us offer Pimers the most interesting, varied and challenging programme yet. Could you please send in your suggestions and comments about the topics and issues that you would like to see covered at PIME 2009 by 30 September at the latest.

We would also like to take this opportunity to launch the PIME Award for Communications Excellence, which was won this year by our friends in the Netherlands for their excellent communications campaign on the radioactive waste management facilities at COVRA.

The deadline for sending in your entries for the 2009 PIME Award for Communications Excellence is 15 November 2008.

Following the success of this year’s new selection process it has been decided to repeat it next year. All entries to the competition will first be judged by a jury made up of nuclear communications specialists, who will then draw up a short-list of the best entries. The short-listed candidates will have the opportunity to present their campaigns at PIME 2009 and Pimers will then be invited to cast their vote to determine the overall winner. It’s all about peer recognition and appreciation.
