Photograph competition – Win registration to the College Conference including flights and accommodation

The College is offering a fully funded conference registration and dinner, as well as accommodation and travel costs if the winner lives outside of Christchurch. The prize will go to the College member who sends us the best photo of midwives working together.

When times are hard our midwifery relationships can support and sustain us. As we look forward to celebrating being together again at this year’s conference in November, we invite you to send us photos that best conceptualise and promote the conference theme of Whanaungatanga.

Photos need to be of yourself and/or colleagues in your workplaces – in a hospital setting, a community setting, at a meeting, in the office, checking equipment, sharing kai during a break, or from any other moment that midwives connect while they are at work.
