ISPN Photo Competition

ISPN Photo Competition

ISPN is calling upon you for the most captivating pediatric neurosurgery photos!

After the success of the 2017 Photo Competition, we continue to look for more pediatric neurosurgery images. We ask ISPN members and colleagues around the world, to submit the most enchanting and special photo(s) of your work. 

Submit your photo before May 1st and grab the opportunity to win free registration for the ISPN 2018 Annual Meeting in Tel Aviv.

Find full details on the submission and prizes below.


What are we looking for?

Photographs should be relevant to pediatric neurosurgery. Your topic can range within this theme, as long as the photo conveys a positive message.

Examples are:

  • Patients; before or after surgery, or during non-surgical treatment
  • Medical staff, perhaps even yourself
  • Teaching and research
  • Relevant equipment, wards, waiting rooms
  • Anything else you believe to be of interest and relevance to your work!

Please do not send photos that would be inappropriate or difficult for the general public to view.
