If you’re a medical or scientific photographer you should definitely consider submitting your best work to BioImages, an annual visual media competition that showcases the finest still, graphics and motion media work in the life sciences and medicine.
BioImages is sponsored by the BioCommunications Association (BCA) and online submissions are accepted until March 22.

In May Medgadget announced a competition called My Medical Museum, that encouraged people to visit their local medical museum and post a presentation on the competition website. The winner was announced yesterday: Adam Simone presenting the Warren Anatomical Museum in Boston. A great presentation combining text, photos and graphics to give you a virtual stroll around the museum.
With only 6 entries, however, the potential of this competition has not been fully realized. In my opinion the submission time was too short (about a month) and the competition website is very counter-intuitive and hard to navigate. There’s no easy way to locate the entries or find the winner.
The idea is too good to end with this, so I suggest to the good people at Medgadget to convert the competition into an ongoing project and make the site more user-friendly. There should be plenty of people interested in submitting, even without a prize.
