The November 1983 issue of the "Journal of Dermatologic Surgery & Oncology" is devoted to the Fourth Annual Residents' Contest. All residents in dermatology were invited to submit articles on subjects pertaining to dermatologic surgery and oncology for consideration in this contest. The papers were judged on the basis of scientific merit, clarity of writing, and thoughtfulness of presentation. Three cash awards were awarded as the first, second and third prize for the best papers. The first prize of $500 was awarded to Barbara J. Fox for her paper "Comparison of Treatment Modalities for Epidermal Nevus: A Case Report and Review."
