Theme - The Journey of Life through Nature
Through your generosity and the generosity of the Friends of Altnagelvin, staff in the Intensive Care Unit at Altnagelvin Area Hospital have an opportunity to bring some meaningful, nature photographic pieces into the unit. The Intensive Care Unit provides treatment and monitoring for people who are critically ill. It is hoped that the addition of these works will create a more relaxed and reflective atmosphere in the ward, improving the environment for patient, relatives and staff alike.
The Photographic Call for Submissions is an invitation callout, for images of nature that evoke a sense of life's journey. The Theme - The Journey of Life through Nature welcomes images of local woodlands, seashores, meadows, and country lanes, positive imagery that transcends life beyond the walls of the hospital ward.
The Open Call invites local digital artists, photographers and photography clubs, as well as Trust staff, service users and their families, and friends to submit high resolution images for consideration. The final works will be chosen in consultation with staff in the Intensive Care Unit.
The selected pieces will be made into canvases and become part of a permanent exhibition within the environment of the Intensive Care Unit. Whilst there is no fee or prize, the selected artist/photographer will be acknowledged on a titled plaque, in local media and through the Trust Communications. The deadline for submission is January 31st.
There is no limit to the amount of images which can be submitted, the only criteria is that works must in some way represent or address the stated theme and all entries must be the photographers own work and have their permissions.
Please share with anyone who may be interested in submitting their work.

Arts Care Artist in Residence in Western Trust, Brónagh Corr-McNicholl for more information on sizes and how to submit.
