What does it mean for you, your friends, family or the person you care for to live with a rare disease?
The EURORDIS Photo Award is an opportunity to visually express the reality of living with a rare disease and to share your rare disease story.
Submit your photo before 31 January 2018 to be in with a chance of winning the EURORDIS Photo Award 2018.
The last EURORDIS Photo Contest saw nearly 400 people from 54 different countries around the world submit a photo.
Upload your photo, including a short description of your image and your photo will appear in the gallery.
World-renowned National Geographic photojournalist Marcus Bleasdale will then select a shortlist of 5 photos that will be opened to a public vote.
Online voting for the five finalists will open on 13 February 2018 via blackpearl.eurordis.org/photo-award.
Voting will close and the winner will be announced live at the EURORDIS Black Pearl Awards Ceremony in Brussels on 20 February. The three finalists with the most votes will each receive a prize.
Be part of the action on the night – find out who wins the EURORDIS Photo Award and 12 other Black Pearl Awards on the evening of 20 February by watching a livestream of the Awards Ceremony via blackpearl.eurordis.org/live.
