Welcome to the first annual UF OTD Photo Contest!

The contest is designed for students to showcase their unique fieldwork and capstone sites and share their experiences in a fun way. Please submit a photo that reflects the role of occupational therapy in your fieldwork or capstone setting.


The contest is open to all current UF OTD students on fieldwork or capstone. Each entry may include up to two photos. Please include a short caption along with your photo that relates to the theme.

Photos must not include any identifiable patient information (no visible faces, names, medical records, phone numbers, addresses, or birthdays).

Photos taken during COVID-19 should follow UF Health photography guidelines. If photos were taken prior to March 2020, please include the date on the photo.

The University of Florida reserves the right to publish all submitted photos for educational purposes, including, but not limited to publication on the University of Florida websites, in brochures or for future contest promotion.

Please submit your photo(s) via the form below. Only one entry per person is allowed.

Judging Criteria

Winners will be selected based on quality of the photo and relevance to theme.

Photo Eligibility

The photo(s) you submit as entry to the contest must be taken by you. Since photo quality is part of the judging criteria, you will want to submit photo(s) at the highest resolution with good lighting and composition.

Photos must be submitted in the JPG or JPEG file format. Users of Apple iOS 11 and later will need to either convert an existing photo taken in the HEIC file format or change the camera format settings to “Most Compatible” before taking a new photo. Visit backlightblog.com to learn more about HEIC, converting to JPG, and iPhone camera settings.
