Vets encouraged to get their cameras out for BVA’s ‘Veterinary photographer of the year’ competition

| 0 comments

This year is British Veterinary Association’s third Veterinary photographer of the year competition. With last year seeing over 600 entries, this year’s competition is anticipated to be even bigger and better!

In light of World Photography Day on 19 August, BVA are encouraging its members to get their cameras out and have some fun!

This year’s themes

The two categories for this year’s competition are:

  • Human: animal bond
  • All creatures great and small

These categories can be interpreted by BVA members in any way they wish. The photographs could feature pets or wildlife for example, and can be taken within or outside of the veterinary practice!

However, while the contents of the photographs will vary widely, all must promote responsible animal interaction and positive animal health and welfare.

Prizes up for grabs

The winner of each category will receive a £250 John Lewis gift voucher! They will also get the chance to have their photographs displayed at BVA’s Members’ Day in September, at other BVA events and used in BVA communications!

Last year’s winners

To give you an idea of the sorts of photographs BVA are looking for, last year’s winning images entitled ‘Rare and native North Ronaldsay and Dartmoor sheep grazing under the milky way in Northumberland’ and ‘Happy Gastronomy’ can be seen below!
