Entrants – who could be vets, VNs, practice managers, students, in fact anyone with a veterinary interest – are being asked to pen an essay in no more than 1,000 words which outlines ‘An idea that will transform the veterinary/veterinary nursing profession by 2030’.
The topic might look at a new business model, a new approach to education, a technological innovation or perhaps a way that the working lives of those in the practice team could be improved – the approach is totally up to the author.
The entries will be judged by the Vet Futures Project Board, which includes the Presidents and Chief Executives of both the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and the British Veterinary Association.
Entries will be anonymised then scored on a range of criteria, including originality, potential impact for the future and realistic prospects of change.
The closing date for entries is midnight on Wednesday 30 September 2015, and the winner will be notified the week commencing Monday 5 October 2015.
The full rules and details of how entries can be submitted can be found on our competition page.
19.08.15 Note the deadline for competition entries has been extended from the original deadline of 31 August 2015.
