Art of Medicine Award
Do you find that there is no space for artistic expression in medical school? Well, look no further! Whether you're the next van Gogh, Beethoven or Nijinksy, or even if you just enjoy art as a hobby, the Art of Medicine Award serves to recognize impactful art pieces created by you and your fellow medical peers based on a yearly theme. We accept any sort of art form, from singing to dancing to visual art to poems to beyond - it is up to whatever you like! Each award is valued at $250. Two winners will be chosen per year.
The top 6 pieces, as determined by OMSA Council through vote, will be put for public vote by all Ontario medical students. The pieces will all be blinded by the OMSA VP Finance prior to the internal vote; however, pieces may be unblinded for the public vote at the artists discretion. The top two pieces with the most votes will win the award.
Theme for 2023: The Dark Side of Medicine. The theme is open to interpretation
Deadline: March 31, 2023
