Members' Photographic Competition

The Trustees and Council of BAUS have agreed to run an on-line photographic competition as part of the BAUS 2021 Virtual Annual meeting. 

Mary Garthwaite, Consultant Urological Surgeon at James Cook University Hospital Middlesbrough & Assistant Curator of the BAUS Virtual Art Gallery conceived the original idea, and the title she has chosen for the competition is:


Details for entrants

After all the trials and tribulations of 2020, the theme for 2021 is a very broad one.

Submissions should reflect your personal interpretation of the title. This could be the view through your camera lens, how you or those around you are coping professionally or personally with the challenges presented by COVID-19, or the modern working life of a urologist in general. 

Deadline for entries is 18.00hr Friday 28 May 2021 ... no late entries accepted

All entries will be displayed in Hall 3 of the Virtual Art Gallery on the BAUS website, with Level 1 copyright (i.e. all rights reserved), and will be open to full public viewing. 

When all submissions have been received, a panel of three judges will select the best three images, and the winning image will be announced during the BAUS 2021 Virtual meeting.

The winning photographer will receive a set of Apple AirPods.
