Mrs Jenny Bellorini, Managing Editor in the Cochrane ENT Disorders Group which is hosted by the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences, has won the 2015 Chris Silagy Prize.

Chris Silagy (1960-2001) was the founding Director of the Australasian Cochrane Centre, a former Chair of the Cochrane Steering Group and instrumental in Cochrane's development and success. Before his death in 2001, he initiated a fund to recognise contributions to The Cochrane Collaboration in ways that are often insufficiently recognised.

The Chris Silagy Prize is awarded at every Cochrane Colloquium to an individual (or organisation) who has made an extraordinary contribution to the work of the Collaboration.

Chris Silagy Prize 2015Mrs Bellorini is a worthy winner of this year's prize. She has copy edited at least 1500 Cochrane reviews and protocols through the Cochrane copy edit support team. This is in addition to her work as the Managing Editor of the Ears, Nose and Throat Review Group.

She was described in her nomination statement as ‘someone who exemplifies quiet reliability, is highly respected and sought out by her peers, and she demonstrates tremendous dedication to carrying out key editorial roles at a consistently high standard over the course of many years.’

The Chris Silagy Prize was presented to Mrs Bellorini by Denise Thomson, the recipient of the 2014 prize, during the Annual General Meeting held at the Vienna Colloquium, 3-7 October 2015, and consists of AU$1,000, a certificate and expenses associated with attending the Colloquium.
