Call for entries: war trauma photos


The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) is sponsoring Wounded in Action: An Art Exhibition of Orthopedic Advancements with the partnership of several Orthopedic specialty groups (Society of Military Orthopedic Surgeons, Orthopedic Trauma Association and the Orthopedic Research Society) and is sending out a call for entries for artwork:

This coincides with the 2010 Annual Meeting in New Orleans which will focus on the impact of war injuries, the trauma care orthopedic surgeons provide, and the research advancements that have allowed them to provide life and limb-saving treatments.

They would like to have local artists participate since the exhibit will be held in New Orleans. Artwork entries will be accepted from wounded troops, their families, Orthopedic surgeons, injured civilians, and artist touched by the impact of war. Note that artists need not have been military personnel, surgeons or personally injured in war themselves.

This exhibit will be on display at the E. Morial Convention Center. Submission deadline is October 15, 2009.
