Photo Contest 2017: "Who is supporting you / Who are you supporting?"
Sept 1-25 - enter by emailing
Share photos of yourself being supported on your breastfeeding journey, or showing how you have supported someone else on theirs. Has your mom provided you advice? Have you helped a friend by making them lactation cookies? Has your partner taken care of feeding your older children while you nurse baby? Have you volunteered as a peer supporter with MBB? These are all examples of breastfeeding support.
Enter your favourite photos in the following categories to win some great prizes!
Breastie - a breastfeeding selfie
Who is supporting you? - a photo highlighting he support you've been given
Who are you supporting? - a photo highlighting the support you have given someone else
Photos can be of yourself nursing or the support you were given/give. You can write up to two sentences to explain the story in the photo if you would like. We encourage you to share your photo on our MBB Peer Support Facebook group.
All photos and releases must be received by Monday, September 25th at 5 pm.
All entries must be emailed to by September 25th at 5PM and must be accompanied by a signed consent form.
Consent forms must accompany the photo and be signed by everyone in the photo, and the person who took the photo.
Winning photos will be based on random draw, each participant will only be entered in the draw for each category once. You may share more than one photo in each category, but will only be entered once.
Winners will be announced at the Breastfeeding Challenge on September 30th!
