Rare Disease Communities Invited to Submit Works to 2020 Rare Artist Contest
To raise awareness of the rare disease communities and celebrate the creativity of its members, the EveryLife Foundation for Rare Diseases is seeking submissions to the 2020 Rare Artist contest. Established in 2010, the contest is open internationally to patients, caregivers, physicians, friends, or anyone else who is connected with the rare disease community. In the United States, a disease is defined as rare when it affects fewer than 200,000 residents nationwide at any given time. Winners of this year's Rare Artist contest will be notified by Dec. 11. A public announcement will be made next Jan. 15. The categories and prizes are: children ages 4-11, $100; teens 12-18, $250; and adults ages 19 and older, $500. All mediums, including painting, photography, and digital art, are accepted. If submitting for someone else, enter the artwork in the category that represents the artist. In addition to the cash prizes, awardees also will be given the opportunity to showcase their original artwork during Rare Disease Week on Capitol Hill, scheduled for March 1-4 next year. The winning artwork also will be posted on the Rare Artist online gallery, and featured at various patient and industry events. International submissions are welcome. However, to receive a travel stipend for Rare Disease Week, a U.S. residency address is required. Those interested in having their artwork voted on through Facebook, in the public voting, should sub
