ESOT2017 image competition

Show what ESOT means to you, and share your creativity with the world!

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the first adult human heart transplant, and the 18th ESOT Congress – and we want to celebrate the opportunities that transplantation offers with the community.

To enter our competition, send us an image* that you feel represents one of the categories below.
The image* could be a photograph, painting, a diagram, or anything else that you’ve created yourself. Images will be judged by a panel of independent advisors from transplant societies around the world, and five winners (one per category) will be printed onto postcards that will be distributed to the international transplant community at the ESOT Congress in September 2017.

Each winner will also receive a free registration for the ESOT2017 Congress!

The categories are:

  • Celebrating and recognising the transplant community 

  • Driving innovation and progress
  • The learning journey
  • Shaping the future of transplantation 

  • Growth
