#NursingInFocus photo contest puts the spotlight on the work of nurses around the world to celebrate the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife

As we kick off the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, Nursing Now is delighted to launch the #NursingInFocus Photo Contest with partners Jhpiego and ICN. 

Nurses and midwives play an essential role in ensuring a healthier world for everyone, everywhere. They are the backbone of our shared goals for universal health coverage, and the foundation to our efforts to extend primary health care services to all. Over the course of this year, we want to highlight the vast scope of work carried out by nurses as they innovate, lead, care for and inspire us with their dedication to the nursing profession.  

The aim of this competition is to encourage people to share photos that inspire and celebrate the impact and influence of nursing. The contest begins today, 1st January 2020 and will close on 1st March 2020. All entries must be posted to social media (Instagram, Facebook or Twitter) using the hashtag #NursingInFocus.

There are several categories, including: #NurseAtWork, #FutureNurse, #WhereINurse, #WhyINurse and #NurseImpact. In order to submit your photograph, you must post it to Instagram, Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag: #NursingInFocus. If you’re entering one of the five categories, you must additionally include the hashtag for the category you are entering. 

There are cash prizes for the overall winner, category winners, and the people’s choice. 

This is an excellent opportunity to shine a light on the wonderful work carried out by nurses everywhere and we urge you to get involved!
