Positive Images of Breastfeeding Photo Contest
Each year the Breastfeeding Coalition of San Joaquin County holds a “Positive Images of Breastfeeding Photo Contest.” (We borrowed the idea from the Sonoma County Breastfeeding Coalition.) Families living in San Joaquin County are invited to submit up to three photos to the contest. We have partnered with Elaine Begley Photography, who offers free mini photo sessions for breastfeeding mothers who would like to have a photo to enter in the contest.
Prizes are awarded in two categories: Personal/Amateur and Professional. The winners receive cash prizes and a framed enlargement of their photo, donated by Elaine Begley and the Galeria Fine Art and Framing. We have displayed the top photos at the California Breastfeeding Summit, our annual Breastfeeding Coalition conference, our Birth, Baby and Bonding Fair and in local hospitals and WIC offices. We have also used many of the photos on our local Coalition website.
