Photography Competition NHS Scotland Photo Library

If you are a photographer working within a Medical Illustration team in the NHS in Scotland you will want to be involved in this prestigious one-off competition.

To coincide with the official launch of the NHSScotland Photolibrary we are seeking portfolios illustrating 21st Century Life in the NHS from our professional photographers. The Photolibrary will be an important national resource and we are looking to fill it with your stunning images.

Closing date 14th May 2010.

Following feedback from a couple of Medical Illustration teams a small amendment has been made to the terms of the competition.

We originally said the images must be taken in 2010. Some teams feel they will struggle to put together 10 images from the current year.

As a compromise we are willing to consider images taken since April 2009, provided they reflect the most up-to-date practice around handwashing, dress code etc and have the necessary consent forms where required.
