Awareness Week Photo Contest


Submit Your Entry for the National Medical Staff Services Awareness Week Photo Contest by Friday, June 23, 2017

Mark your calendar: National Medical Staff Services Awareness Week is November 5-11, 2017.

Showcase your facility within the NAMSS community and heighten awareness of MSPs at the same time! NAMSS is now accepting entries for the 2017 National Medical Staff Services Awareness Week photo contest.

NAMSS invites you to submit a photo that celebrates medical staff and credentialing services professionals in the healthcare community. This is your opportunity to represent the profession to others in our facilities and within our communities. NAMSS will select one photo to display on this year’s National Medical Staff Services Awareness Week poster, which will be included in Synergy and available to download online. The submission deadline is Friday, June 23, 2017.

To take part in the National Medical Staff Services Awareness Week photo contest:

  • Gather your staff in appropriate business attire for a digital photo. The photo must have two or more individuals in the picture and at least one person in the photo must be a current NAMSS member.
  • Creativity that promotes our Medical Services Profession image is encouraged.
  • It must be an original work that does not contain, incorporate or otherwise use any content, material or element that is owned by a third party or entity. No content displaying any third party advertising, slogan, logo, trademark or otherwise indicating a sponsorship or endorsement by a third party, commercial entity or that is not within the spirit of the contest may be used.
  • Photo entries that may be interpreted as non-relevant, in poor taste, or contain commercial content that promotes anything other than the Medical Services Professional products or services offered by NAMSS may be subject to disqualification.
  • If you are the only MSP at your organization, then include at least one other person, such as your VPMA, medical director, department chief/chair, credentialing chair, CEO, COO, etc. in the photo. Of course, the more the merrier, so even if you have a department of several MSPs, you may include any of your medical staff members as well, if you like.
  • Submit a digital photo in JPEG format (high resolution, original size: 5 X 7 in. or larger) and the following information to Andrew Miller at amiller@namss.org by Friday, June 23, 2017:
    • Organization name and address
    • Contact name, phone number, and e-mail address
    • Names and titles of all individuals in the photograph, noting any who are current NAMSS members

If selected, you will be required to complete a photo release form. This form will be sent to you upon receipt of your submission.

The NAMSS Membership Committee will vote to select the winning photo. All photos will be judged upon clarity/quality and the overall character/professional appearance of the image. Remember, we want to convey a message that celebrates medical staff and credentialing services professionals in the healthcare community. We are looking for the photo that will best convey that message.

If you have questions, please contact Andrew Miller at (202) 367-1196 or e-mail amiller@namss.org. We look forward to your participation!
