The European Federation of Periodontology has extended the deadline for its second EuroPerio Photo Contest and would-be participants now have until Thursday 5 May to submit their entries.
The competition’s three winners will receive a free registration for one of two EFP events to be held next year: Perio Master Clinic 2023 in Antwerp, Belgium, or International Perio Master Clinic 2023 in León, Mexico.
There will be one winner in each of the competition’s three categories: healthy gums/healthy life, dental disease, and extreme/freestyle.
This contest is being organised through the EFP’s 37 affiliated national societies of periodontology, which will select national winners in each category from the photographs submitted by their members. Participants in the contest may submit as many photographs as they like.
To be able to participate in the contest, photographers need to register for EuroPerio10, which takes place at the Bella Centre in Copenhagen on June 15-18.
The national winners will each receive an EFP photo-contest certificate, and their photographs may be published and credited in future EFP publications.
The national-winner photographs will then be presented at EuroPerio10 where attendees will be able to vote for winners in each of the three categories (neither the names of the photographer nor those of their national societies will be displayed).
In the 2018 contest, more than 300 photographs were submitted to the national societies in the first phase of the contest, and 57 entries from 23 countries were selected for the final stage of the first EFP photo competition at EuroPerio9 in Amsterdam.
