EAPC 2019 – Photography competition

Does a photo of hands holding hands truly portray modern palliative care? What image says palliative care to you? In the run up to the Berlin congress, the EAPC is seeking ‘New images of palliative care’.  Modern technology means many of us carry a camera in our pockets, and we are asking you to take this opportunity to send in your image that you believe will help to change the conversation about palliative care.

A panel will judge all entries and the winners will be awarded a prize. Their photographs will be printed and exhibited at the EAPC World Congress in Berlin. Winners photo’s will also feature on EAPC social media ensuring an even bigger international audience beyond the congress.

Entries can be emailed to: photocompetition@posteo.de
