ISPN is searching for the most captivating pediatric neurosurgery photos.

Submit your photo before August 14th and win free registration for the ISPN Annual Meeting in Denver. Read more below for full details on the submission guidelines and prizes.

Submit your pediatric neurosurgery photo

Photographs should be relevant to pediatric neurosurgery. For example: patients before or after surgery or during non-surgical treatment, medical staff, perhaps even yourself. Photographs do not have to just include people, but also relevant equipment, waiting rooms, wards, buildings or anything else that you deem to be interesting and relevant to your work, including teaching and research.

Whatever the topic of the photo may be, it must convey a positive message. 
Please do not send photos that would be inappropriate or difficult for the general public to view.
