Anthony Baines Wins The RCN "Care On Camera" Photography Competition

Back in November 2015 the Royal College of Nursing in conjunction with the Royal Photographic Society launched a photographic competition.
In 2016 the Royal College of Nursing celebrates 100 years as the voice of nursing.
To mark this milestone in our history we've joined with the Royal Photographic Society and NHS Employers to look for the best photographs that illustrate UK nursing in all its diversity. 
We want to see your images showing nursing in different environments; whether that’s a hospital ward, an industrial setting or your own front room. It’s your chance to capture pictures of nurses, midwives and health care assistants both in and out of uniform; in the NHS and private sectors; as practitioners, teachers and students. 
Collectively the photographs from this competition will contribute a record of contemporary nursing to the RCN archives, and shortlisted images will also form a touring exhibition that will help people understand that nursing is not just confined to hospital wards, but comes in many different guises.
Anthony decided to enter the competition and after being short-listed, it was announced in June that he had won the Gold Award for his photograph, "Community Nursing Care at Home", chosen from more than 800 entries (

Congratulations Anthony, well deserved.

I would recommend reading Anthony's own blog were he details how he went about creating his winning photograph.
