Imagine Medicine Photo Contest

November 22, 2010 § 2 Comments has announced an exciting medicine-themed photo contest they call Imagine Medicine. The prize is an iPad.

We are looking for fascinating medical photography that… imagines medicine. Nothing is off the table: portraits, group shots, happy shots, tragic shots, clinical shots, photoshop illustrations, macro, micro, and anything in between. Can you imagine medicine, showcase it as art, and make us wonder?

To participate, simply upload your photographs to Flickr and tag them with “imaginemedicine” and “medgadget”, by 11:59pm ET on December 5, 2010.

You can see all the submitted photos here.
