For those new to the Section, EMages is a clinical case and photo competition run by our Section. Winning submissions will be posted on the Section microsite and presented at the annual Pediatric EM Section Meeting and Reception this October at ACEP17 in Washington D.C.. Deadline for submitting your photo and case is May 19, 2017. Winners will be announced by June 16, 2017. Please submit your case photos and materials to Staff Liaison Lindsay Peters.

Winners will receive an ACEP voucher, which can be spent on ACEP products (i.e., books, meetings, etc.).  First place will receive a $500 ACEP voucher; second place will receive a $250 ACEP voucher; third place will receive a $125 ACEP voucher.

NOTE: Entries may be posted on the Section microsite. All posted entries can be re-used or submitted to other publications, but authors will have to obtain permission to do so from the Section.
Image should be submitted .jpg or .tiff file no smaller than 1000 x 780 pixels along with a 300 word case description in Word (not PDF) format.  Exotic or highly unusual cases are certainly welcome, but a well-documented and presented routine case with high teaching utility is just as likely to win.

Consent must be obtained from the patient or their legal guardian, as appropriate. Permission for use of these images is granted to ACEP.
Judging Criteria
The following elements/criteria will be used in judging entries:

Novelty of Image
Image Quality:
Does the image support the case presentation? 
Quality of Case Write-up
Impact: Does the image help in future clinical decisions?
Clarity and Teaching Utility: How useful is the image and the clinical case as a teaching tool?

We encourage and welcome your submissions, and look forward to another great contest this year!
