Photography Competition 2023

“Same same but different”

We are back! The EAPC photo competition premiered in Berlin 2019, it became established as a Congress highlight in 2021 and we are delighted to announce that the competition is now open for entries for EAPC 18th World Congress 2023. Submitting photos is open to everyone, not just delegates joining us in Rotterdam in June 2023.

Looking back at all the wonderful photos that you have entrusted to us in the last competitions, it is easy to see that Palliative Care around the world is the ‘same, same but different’. Your photos allowed us to share with you a very personal point of view of your life and work. As different as these photos are, they all tell stories of one, single moment which somehow lets us hold onto something for eternity.  In the context of Palliative Care that seems almost strange.

So, we ask you to share what palliative care means to you. The theme for the photo competition is ‘Same same but different’. Please enter our competition and send us your photos and stories reflecting your vision and views of Palliative Care. To help inspire you, below are some photos from our previous competitions!

The winner (s) will be announced during the Closing ceremony of the 18th EAPC World Congress 2023, Saturday, 17th June 2023 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
