Photo competition launched

Poole Hospital is inviting local people showcase their photography for patients on one of its elderly care wards to enjoy.

If you’ve got an eye for a great picture and are handy with a camera, why not share your skills by submitting an image to our photography competition?

We are looking for photos which reflect the nature of the wonderful town we work in, and are inviting submissions in the category of:

  • The quay
  • The beach
  • The heath 

Lilliput ward sister, Sarah Gilling, said: “Many of our patients are local so we’d really love some images that would be recognisable to them.

“From projects in other wards we know that patients respond really well to these sorts of changes – they find it familiar which has a calming effect.

“These improvements are beneficial for everyone though – patients, visitors and staff. It’s really about softening the clinical aspect of the hospital environment.”

All winning images will be displayed throughout the ward, printed for walls or vinyl stickers for the windows, with the winners' names next to each picture. Winning images will also be used for Poole Hospital Charity’s 2014 calendar.

The most outstanding work in each category will also receive the following prizes, kindly donated by Poole Hospital Charity:

The quay

  • A voucher for afternoon tea for two at Hotel du Vin near the quay in Poole and an A5 pewter and sterling silver photo frame

The beach

  • A voucher for afternoon tea for two at the Haven Hotel in Sandbanks, and a passport sized pewter and sterling silver photo frame

The heath 

  • A voucher for afternoon tea for two at The Green House Hotel on the East Cliff, Bournemouth, and a bottle of wine 

Overall winner

  • A voucher for afternoon tea for two at the Seven's Boatshed in Poole Park and a £25 M&S voucher

Please send hard copies of all entries to the communications team, Churchfield House, Poole Hospital or email images to communications@poole.nhs.uk by midnight Monday 30 September 2013.

Winners will be announced in October 2013.
