Once again The International Orthoptic Association is holding a photography contest to develop new promotional materials for our annual celebration. We are inviting any member of the IOA to submit photos of his/her representation of our profession.

This year’s theme is:
“Orthoptists closing the gap: from evidence to action”.

Showcase an aspect of orthoptic practice or science and marry it to any artistic interpretation you choose.
Let your Knowledge of orthoptics past and present, together with your imagination, soar.

Contest closes on May 1st, 2019, 11.59pm EST
Prizes for top 3 images. The winning submission will be used on all of our promotional materials for World Orthoptic Day. Please encourage each other to get involved as this is one of the many ways to showcase our profession on a global basis.
