Earlier this year, the organisation ran its first photography competition for members and received more than 400 entries. It was won by vets Karen Coumbe and Stephen Powles.

An equine vet with more than 30 years’ experience, Dr Coumbe’s photo of an operation on an infected hoof won the “You and your work” category, while a photo of a bat in flight took the crown in the “Wonderful world of animals” category for Mr Powles, who joined the BVA in 1983.

BVA Members’ Day attendees will be able to see an exhibition of the winning photographs for the first time, along with those entries that received a Highly Commended Award.

Veterinary View

Attendees will also be invited to view this year’s Veterinary View programme for the first time. Now in its second year, Veterinary View is a series of unique news and current affairs-style short films for and about the veterinary profession, made in collaboration with ITN Productions.

This year’s films cover a wealth of topics aimed at all areas of the profession, including a look at where a veterinary degree can take you, who’s who in a veterinary practice and how the veterinary profession is working to tackle antimicrobial resistance.

There’s also a look at responsible dog breeding and buying, as well as preventive health care and the importance of the vet-client relationship – all combining key industry and sector interviews and reports.
