Medicine rocks! It makes the sick heal, pain go away, and healers proud and happy. Medicine is an art, where the instruments are medical technologies, warm hands, and learned minds. Many of us see medicine everyday: in ERs, ORs, ICUs, PACUs, PICUs, and SICUs. We see medicine through our eyes and our hearts. But what about your camera?
Welcome to the Imagine Medicine contest! We are looking for fascinating medical photography that… imagines medicine. Nothing is off the table: portraits, group shots, happy shots, tragic shots, clinical shots, photoshop illustrations, macro, micro, and anything in between. Can you imagine medicine, showcase it as art, and make us wonder?
Here’s the lowdown. The contest is open to all. Upload your photograph(s) to Flickr, and tag them with “imaginemedicine” and “medgadget” keywords. Make sure you add at least one sentence describing your work. The deadline for submissions is 11:59pm ET on December 5, 2010. The winner will be announced on December 10th and the prize is a brand new 16GB iPad with Wi-Fi.
Here are the judges, who will make all the final decisions: Medgadget editors, Dr. Allen Roberts from GruntDoc, and our good friend Elena Zhukova (website), a super talented photographer from the San Francisco Academy of Art.
Good luck to all and we’re looking forward to what you can imagine.
