Photo Contest for IBE 50th Anniversary - Epilepsy Without Words

IBE launches a special photography competition as part of its Golden Jubilee celebrations.

Epilepsy Without Words - IBE Photo Competition

A photography competition, open to all, is the first of many initiatives being planned to celebrate IBE’s Golden Jubilee in 2011. The competition, titled Epilepsy Without Words is open for entries from 15 May 2010 until the closing date on 1 March 2011.

A special photo gallery, displaying all entries received, will be open on the IBE website (www.ibe-epilepsy.org) starting 1 June 2011 and the competition winners will be announced during the 29th International Epilepsy Congress in Rome in late August 2011.


In addition to a category for regular digital camera photos, there is also a special category for photos taken using a mobile/cell phone. As most of us now carry a phone with an built-in camera, there is no excuse for not taking part in this competition. And, who knows, you could be the winner of one of the major prizes!

Who can enter?

The competition is open to everyone – professional and amateur photographers alike. However, if you are under the age of 16 years, you will need the permission of a parent or guardian to take part.
