How would you represent physical therapy and human movement?

WCPT has launched its Art and Health competition. Selected finalists will be shown at WCPT’s World Congress in Amsterdam in June.

The competition will focus on the theme of movement for health. WCPT is seeking outstanding pieces of artwork relevant to physical therapy, including:

  • human movement in health and disease
  • people with functional limitations in action
  • physical therapy practice across the lifespan.

The original artwork should be in one of the following forms: photography, painting, drawing, sculpture. The competition is open to both professionals and amateurs. The overall winner will be awarded a winning certificate and their work will be given a high profile within the Art and Health exhibit at WCPT’s Congress. A photograph of their work will be featured on the WCPT website and in the website’s photo gallery.

A maximum of three entries may be submitted by any one individual. All entries must be submitted electronically (as a JPEG photograph). If a photograph of a sculpture, drawing or painting is being submitted, the artwork must be clearly visible and well-lit.

The closing date for the competition is 31st January 2011. Please email entries (or direct any enquiries) to Mia Lockner at info@wcpt.org.
