Art of Pathology competition

Last year's winner (over 18s): Dr Katherine Iles

This year

This year our competition theme is: 'Patterns in Pathology'

We’d like you to use your imagination as to what this could mean to you. Whether it is patterns seen through a microscope, patterns in numbers, or patterns within a pathologist’s way of working, let your imagination inspire you to take the theme in whichever direction you wish.

The art can come in any format: painting, drawing, sculpture, digital, collage, or any other media that you wish to use.

For more inspiration, browse through our ‘What is Pathology?’ pages of the website to discover more about the specialties.


Prizes will be awarded in three categories:

  • Under 11
  • 11 - 18
  • Over 18

Entries should include a 25-50 word caption explaining how it relates to pathology. However, the artwork should also make sense without the caption.

A £50 prize will be awarded to the most creative work in each category.

The best entries will be published on our website and featured in the College magazine, The Bulletin.

All entries will displayed at our NPW College fair - the perfect chance to showcase your work!
