Supporting Birth Photo and Art Competition 2014 NOTICE: Event Postponed Indefinitely

New Beginnings Childbirth Services is please to announce our first annual  Supporting Birth Photo and Art Competition 2014. This competition represents a next step in our continued effort to broaden our scope of services related to doulas.  We recently also announce website hosting services for doulas and are continuing to increase the available business tools to help doulas in their marketing efforts. To this end, we find that there is a great lack of available imagery that supports the birthing experience.  As a first step to remedy this, we are staging a photograph and artwork competition to create a collection of artists from whom we can engage with to create further business opportunities among birth professionals — in the online sphere.

This is not the first time that Rachel has staged a birth-related art exhibition. Back in 2009, the Journey of Birth online art exhibition was pulled together to feature art and the artists that focused their artistic expressions on the birthing experience. This new competition has a unique focus on capturing the experience of birth and the support that can be extended to women during childbirth. We hope that the competition will also create further exposure for the need and work of doulas.

Cash prizes of up to $100 for a first place entry are being offered, but we are also treating this competition as an online  opportunity for all qualifying participants to promote their own services. Each qualifying entry will be featured with the submitting artist’s name, location, and web address.  Additionally, we will be keeping submission names on file to create further marketing opportunities for participating artists.

The competition’s submission period starts today, Wednesday, October 22nd, and goes through Saturday, November 22nd, 2014. Each submission is only $10.   Qualifying submissions will be posted online as they are reviewed. Please read the full rules and regulation before making a submission.

NOTICE: Event Postponed Indefinitely
