Practices can select to emulate one of the following case studies:
Nominations should be submitted using the linked form and describe their emulation, and additional relevant information including how they varied from the original case study, what was improved upon, what challenges were avoided by following the case study, and any advice to future emulators that could be given.
Once the nomination period has ended, submissions will be reviewed by the selection committee to identify the top finalists. The finalists will be posted on the ACR website for review and voting during the time period noted below. Promotion of voting will occur through social media. This process will provide a winner determined through a combination of popular vote and expert choice.
Additional details on the judging criteria will be posted on the website in the upcoming weeks.
Applicants can be practices, departments, or individuals. If a group is submitting, a lead contact should be indicated on the form, and the emulation should only be submitted once. Practices may nominate themselves or others who have emulated a case study. Authors of current case studies are encouraged to nominate those who have “transplanted” their case studies.
