2017 Midwifery Video Contest Now Open!

ACNM’s 9th annual video contest is underway. This means it’s time to show off your creativity and enter this year’s competition. Midwives and student midwives are invited submit a video of up to 4 minutes in 1 of 3 categories.

The grand prize winner of each category will win a free registration to the 2018 Annual Meeting & Exhibition. Grand prize winners and runners up will be posted on our social media channels (Instagram, Facebook and YouTube) and considered for use in public relations efforts. All submissions must be received by Monday, May 1, 2017.

The contest categories are:

1. Midwifery Moment of Truth. Do you have a funny, compelling, engaging, or unique Moment of Truth about your decision to become a midwife? Video content should focus on how your desire and decision to become a midwife came to be — what was your midwifery moment of truth? (Current enrollment in or recent graduation from an ACME-accredited midwifery education program is required for students who are submitting in this category.)

2. Choose a Midwife. Use your passion and creativity to help ACNM raise public awareness about midwifery. When did you realize midwifery care was the right choice for you? Which aspect of a midwife’s approach to health care would you like to share with others? Video content must focus on why women should choose a midwife as a birth care provider and/or a primary health care provider.

3. Why I’m an ACNM Member. What does your membership mean to you? How does the ACNM community impact your life on a daily basis? What do you value most about being a member? We encourage creative content as you reflect on how joining ACNM has affected your life in a positive way.

Winners will be announced at the Awards Dinner & Midwifery Celebration Party on Wednesday, May 24, 2017 at the ACNM 62nd Annual Meeting & Exhibition in Chicago.
