Each year, the College runs an Art of Pathology competition, where people of all ages can submit paintings, drawings, sculptures, digital art, collages or any other media on a specific theme.

This year’s theme is Pathology: at the heart of healthcare. The competition is open to people of all ages, within the UK and abroad, until Friday 7 August 2020

Participants are invited to interpret this theme in their own unique and creative way, while exploring different aspects of pathology. We've provided some questions for consideration and useful links to help entrants explore this year's theme and gain a deeper understanding of pathology to inspire their artwork. These can be found on our Art of Pathology competition webpage

There are three categories for entry

  • Under 11s
  • 11-17s
  • Over 18s

A £50 prize will be awarded to the most creative work in each category, and the best entries will be published on our website and featured in the College magazine, The Bulletin. 

Across the 17 pathology specialties, creativity is an essential and vastly beneficial skill that drives the advancement of knowledge. This competition encourages participants of all ages to use pathology as inspiration to cultivate their creativity. We look forward to seeing your entries!
