ACLP Bulletin Photo Contest

"Child Life Through Your Eyes"

Overview:

ACLP Bulletin’s “Child Life Through Your Eyes” front cover photo contest challenges anyone to capture or share an image that represents what child life means to them. The winner(s) will have their photo used on the front cover of an upcoming issue of ACLP Bulletin and will be asked to provide a brief caption describing the image that will be published. Other photos may also be selected to accompany articles within the issue.

You can interpret “an image of child life” in any way you choose; you are not restricted to subjects or themes. The ACLP Bulletin Photo Contest accepts submissions from all in the child life community (students, professionals, retirees, etc.), with a submission deadline of 11:59pm EST on September 16. The winner(s) will be announced in October, and selected photo(s) will be featured on the front cover of upcoming issues of ACLP Bulletin starting with Fall 2022.
