With pleasure we would like to share the winning photos of the ISPN 2017 photo competition.

46 entries were received for the competition, each interpreting their own view on a positive message on pediatric neurosurgery. The submitted images were blind reviewed by the members of the ISPN Communications Committee and Executive Board, after which the 3 winning images were selected.

The 1st prize winner is Alp Özgun Börcek with his picture taken from a different angle; the 2nd and 3rd prize photos were coincidentally taken by the same person, Ali Ihsan Okten.

Their pictures will be displayed on the ISPN website and they have received their free (1st) and reduced (2nd & 3rd) registration prizes!









1. Through O-Arm / Depending on technology: it is especially important for pediatric cases to find tiny anatomic structures

2. The first form of communication between a baby and a nurse

3. Feeding time for a baby in an incubator

As we continue to look for more pediatric neurosurgery images, we are happy to announce that the photo competition will be re-opened for ISPN 2018, and you will have a chance to win free registration for the Tel Aviv meeting.

More information on the new photo competition will be shared as soon as it is launched, so be on the lookout for that one amazing shot which highlights your work in a positive way!
