Entry to the BVA’s inaugural photography competition closes on 31 May.

The competition runs until 31 May and there are two categories:

  • You and your work: This calls for images of vets or the veterinary team carrying out their everyday work – be that in practice with patients, on-farm with clients, in surgery, in conservation work, the military, carrying out research, teaching, doing veterinary work abroad, working with the media or influencing policy.
  • The wonderful world of animals: This includes photographs of any animals, including wildlife, that have been taken outside the veterinary working environment.

BVA president Sean Wensley said the contest was a chance for the profession to capture eye-catching images from their working life.

He said: “We are excited to see the photographs our members will submit, documenting the working lives of the veterinary team and capturing the animal world with a vet’s eye.”

Open to members

The competition is open to all BVA members, who can submit up to two pictures in each category. Photographs should be labelled as to which category they are being submitted for.

As well as the winner of each category receiving photography vouchers, the winning pictures will be displayed at BVA’s members’ day in September. The winning photographs could also be reproduced in BVA publications and at other events. Competition judges will include photography experts and BVA representatives.
