The EveryLife Foundation For Rare Diseases (EveryLifeFoundation.org) is a nonprofit dedicated to accelerating biotech innovation for rare disease treatments through science-driven public policy. It sponsors an annual contest to recognize artists from within the rare disease community.
This year will be the eighth such event. This year, the organizers "hope to engage even more members of the rare disease community in order to raise awareness of their diseases and showcase their talent."
The deadline for entry is December 5, 2016, with prizes ranging from $100 to $500, plus the opportunity to have the winning work displayed at the Rare Artist Reception to be held on March 1, 2017 in Washington, DC in conjunction with Rare Disease Week on Capitol Hill. Artists with works chosen for this reception will be eligible for travel stipends.
