There is still time to submit your photographs, capturing modern nursing on camera, to the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) photography competition.

NHS Employers is supporting the competition alongside the Royal Photographic Society to help recognise and celebrate the amazing work nurses do, to deliver outstanding patient care.

Danny Mortimer, NHS Employers chief executive, said: “We are delighted to support the RCN in celebrating their centenary year. The photography competition is a fantastic way to capture and celebrate the varied and diverse nature of our nursing workforce and recognise the exceptional work nurses do, across all settings, to deliver excellent patient care.”

About the competition

Care on camera is a free competition open to everyone of all abilities and ages, entries should aim to show nursing in different environments; whether that’s a hospital ward, an industrial setting or your own front room. It’s a chance to capture pictures of nurses, midwives and health care assistants in the NHS and private sectors; as practitioners, teachers and students.

50 shortlisted entries will be chosen by a panel of judges from the RCN, the Royal Photographic Society, nursing and guest celebrity judge, TV and theatre actress, Tamzin Outhwaite.

The winners will be announced at the RCN Congress 2016 and the shortlisted images will be part of a UK wide touring exhibition that will help people understand that nursing is not just confirmed to hospital wards, but comes in many different guises.

Closing date for entries is midnight on 29 February
