About the contest

On 7th November 2017 we launched the Marie Curie 150th Creative Challenge – a Video Contest in which anyone could participate by providing creative content sustaining the message “radiotherapy cures cancer”. The videos would help us celebrate the legacy of this exceptional woman by spreading the word on the benefits of radiotherapy in curing cancer. We thank all participants of the Marie Curie 150th Creative Challenge! They provided great content and many new insights into radiotherapy, for which we are grateful. The contest ended with 9 finalists, and the public voted for a winner via our social media channels. The winner was crowned during  ESTRO37 in Barcelona. This space is dedicated to the winning video and other finalists.
