World Encephalitis day is Monday 22nd February 2016. #WED222 is used to help raise awareness on social media for this amazing day! This year the Encephalitis society have decided to run a competition with the theme ‘Year of the Narrative‘ – they need you to enter and win some amazing prizes!
The competition focuses on Short Film, Digital Art & Photography. Your entry could be anything: a piece of digital artwork whipped up on your computer, a photograph snapped on a camera or mobile phone, or even a short film. You need to get your entries in by 31st January 2016 to be in with a chance of winning!
Their hope is to raise awareness about the condition which affects 500,000 people around the world each year. I myself was diagnosed with Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis in August 2014 and it has changed my life completely, early diagnosis is key! #showyouknow
Please watch the YouTube video for more information!
Good luck & I look forward to seeing everyone entries on the website, 🙂
P.S I am in no way afflicted with this competiton, I am purely trying to help raise more awareness and help get more people entering the competition! I will also be entering the competition so good luck to everyone!!!
