Try to catch the viewers’ attention and interest and ideally show veterinarians and their work from an unusual perspective. Your photos should emphasise that vets play an important role in our society.

The photos can be in full colour, sepia or in black and white and taken with a film or digital camera. Editing is allowed in colour or composition – montage, collage, retouching, etc. Re-sharpening and correction of the tonal value is also permitted.
