The Ellen Fitzgibbon Memorial Photography Competition was established in memory of Ellen Fitzgibbon, veterinarian, outdoor enthusiast, and photographer, who used her artwork to raise awareness of ovarian cancer, the disease to which she lost her life on June 8, 2018.
This competition celebrates Ellen Fitzgibbon’s passion for the natural world and carries on her wish “to bring hope and beauty to those facing cancer.”
The competition has opened on September 1st, to coincide with Ovarian Cancer Awareness month, and in a hope that Ellen’s story will help educate women on this deadly disease.
