Deadline for New Submissions: Wednesday, March 31, 2021 at 11:59 PM PT
ASCRS and the Ophthalmic Photographers’ Society (OPS) co-sponsor a call for photo submissions of high-quality ophthalmic images demonstrating superior imaging techniques to be selected for the OPS exhibit at the ASCRS Annual Meeting. OPS represents members who perform imaging of all structures of the eye using highly specialized equipment in order to increase the level of patient care and help to advance the science and practice of ophthalmology. The photo selection process is judged by ophthalmologists and OPS member photographers. Acceptance of a photograph(s) for the exhibit is highly selective. You do not have to be an OPS member or need to register for the annual meeting to submit photo entries. Meeting registration is required if you are planning on attending the ASCRS Annual Meeting in San Francisco.
OPS Submission(s) requires a 2-step process for 2021 as we transfer the exhibit to a digital format. The first step is filling out the entry form online with your intent to submit a photo(s). You must complete a Financial Interest disclosure. The second step will be uploading your digital photo(s) on January 8th using a link that will be sent to you via email. Separate instructions for uploading your photo(s) will be sent with the link.
