Calling all photographers!
Do you have a photograph that captures life with a rare disease during the COVID-19 pandemic? Perhaps you have the perfect picture already, or perhaps you haven’t taken it yet. Either way, don’t forget to submit it to the EURODIS Photo Award 2021. This annual competition is your chance to show the world what it means to live with a rare disease.
Photo submissions for the Photo Award 2021 are now open
The EURORDIS Photo Award is an opportunity to visually express what it means to live with a rare disease and to share your story with the rare disease community and beyond.
The contest is open to all nationalities, ages and diseases. Last year hundreds of people from more than 30 different countries around the world submitted a photo, each reflecting the drive of people living with a rare disease worldwide.
Finalists chosen by Marcus Bleasdale
Once your photo has been approved, it will appear in the Gallery. From all who enter, five finalists will be chosen by the award-winning photographer Marcus Bleasdale.
On-line voting – starting on 11th February – will determine the winner on the night of the EURORDIS Black Pearl Awards, on 24th February 2021. The three finalists with the most votes will each receive a prize.
