Competitions 

We are pleased to announce three new, exciting, annual APPM competitions (open to members and non-members). 

Photography Competition 

We are looking to improve and expand the photos on the APPM website, and so are inviting entries for a photography competition. 
 
Please send us your entries on a theme of "What Paediatric Palliative Care Means to Me" by 5pm on Friday 30th October 2020. 
 
The entries will be viewed and scored by members of the APPM executive committee. All suitable entries will be displayed at the November 2020 study day the following month. The winning entry will be given a prize of £50 of Oxford University Press vouchers, and the photograph will be used on the APPM website. The winner will be announced at the study day. Runner-up photographs will also be considered for use on the website. Please email chair@appm.org.uk with any entries (and to request a copy of our consent form for use of the photographs in the APPM display and website).  
 
Please also adhere to your local consent policy if taking or sharing photographs of patients or families.
