#NursingInFocus Photo Contest 2020

Overall Winner: $1,000


We’re celebrating the Year of the Nurse, and want to hear from YOU! Show us the breadth and importance of nurses today by entering the #NursingInFocus Photo Contest. Put a moment of your life in focus—whether you’re a nurse, work with nurses, receive care from a nurse, or just know a nurse—we want to see photos that document all that nurses do!

Experience and technical skills as a photographer are not the sole criteria for winning. Photos submitted should convey the opportunities, challenges, highs and lows of nursing today. We want to see nurses everywhere, leading, innovating, caring and so much more.

The competition has five categories:

• Nurse At Work || #NurseAtWork
Show us a moment in your professional career – whether you’re in a facility, or at a policy-briefing!

• Future Nurse || #FutureNurse
Not a nurse yet, but you’re on the path? Dream of becoming a nurse? Document your journey!

• Where I'm a Nurse || #WhereINurse
Nurses are EVERYWHERE. Show us where YOU nurse!

• Why I'm a Nurse || #WhyINurse
Nurses are passionate, dedicated and courageous…tell us why you do what you do!

• The Impact of Nurses || #NurseImpact
Nurses save lives, improve health and transform futures every day. Show us your impact.

How to Enter

In order to submit your photograph, you must post it to Instagram, Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag: #NursingInFocus. If you’re entering one of the 5 categories, you must additionally include hashtag for the category you are entering. Entering a category does not exclude you from also winning the top overall prize. Photographs do not have to be current. If you have a strong entry from many years ago, we will consider it. However, preference will be given to more recent photography.


• Overall Winner: $1,000
• Category Winners: $200
• People's Choice: $500


By submitting an entry, each contestant agrees to the rules of the contest and states that he or she is 18 years old or older.
