Photography competition celebrates LGBT month

To celebrate LGBT History month, York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has launched a photographic competition inviting people to send in their photos to help gather images that better represent all members of our community.  

Margaret Milburn, Equality and Diversity Coordinator, explained: "As an inclusive healthcare provider we want to better represent our community and feedback has suggested that there should be greater visibility of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community within the Trust. 

“We need your help to find images that represent our LGBT community and friends. These can be individuals, couples or groups. Whether it is a close up, crowd shot, or outdoor setting it just needs to be within the geographical area the Trust serves.

“We will use the images in our leaflets and on the Trust website. Once we have gathered them together an exhibition is also planned to celebrate the LGBT community which will be displayed around the Trust sites.”

Everyone is invited to take part you can email your pictures or put them on a memory stick or disk and post them to us. They should be suitable to be printed landscape size 29cm x 19cm and be high resolution, minimum 300dpi. Pictures should be labelled with a file name that includes your name and the where you took the image and include an email or covering letter stating your full name, where you took each image.

Please email your entries to Garth Pickersgill or post memory sticks or disks to:

Garth Pickersgill, PA to Director of Workforce and Organisational Development

5th Floor, York Hospital, Wigginton Road, York, YO31 8HE

The deadline for entries is Monday 29 February 2016.
