Plastic Surgery Practice Magazine and the American Melanoma Foundation Announce search for innovative sun protection products. Deadline for entry in PSP Sun Safety Awards is April 1, 2015.

Plastic Surgery Practice is launching its first annual PSP Sun Safety awards.

The search is on.... Plastic Surgery Practice magazine is looking for a few truly innovative and inspiring sun-protection products.

Together with the American Melanoma Foundation (AMF), Plastic Surgery Practice is launching its first annual PSP Sun Safety awards. Winning products will be featured in a special issue of PSP’s May 2015 “Hot Stuff,” and receive a winner’s seal. The special PSP Sun Safety seal emphasizes your brand’s commitment to safety and innovation and can serve as an effective marketing tool.

“The signing of the Sunscreen Innovation Act by President Barack Obama will surely foster an onslaught of innovative new sunscreens and other sun- protection products, “ says PSP editor Denise Mann. “We are thrilled to support this new contest and help companies promote their life-saving products.”

Products will be judged by La Jolla, Calif-based dermatologist Dr. Mona Z. Mofid, who also serves as the medical director of the AMF.

“One in five Americans will develop skin cancer during their lifetime and one person dies almost every hour in the United States from melanoma,” Mofid says. “Prevention and awareness are the keys, and judicious use of ultraviolet or sun protective products can save lives.”

The contest is open to any and all products that help lower risk of skin cancer, including screening technologies. The deadline for submission is April 1, 2015.
