The Academy has created a photo contest to feature a one-of-a-kind gallery that will inspire all viewers to overcome their many challenges and has returned for its 9th year! The deadline to submit your photo is Wednesday, September 1, 2021. We look forward to your creative submissions!
Photos of individuals affected by cerebral palsy and other childhood-onset disabilities in the midst of doing what they enjoy or completing a basic task or celebrating a major accomplishment. The photos can contain family members and care providers but we must have a photo release for each person in the photo.
Then, include a title that is unique to the ability being highlighted in the photo. The title/phrase will be mounted next to the photo.
The Academy will select the top photos for display at the AACPDM 75th Annual Meeting. The top three winners will be announced upon the conclusion of the meeting.
The 1st place winner will receive a professionally mounted enlargement of their submitted photo, free basic conference registration to the 76th Annual Meeting to be September 21-24, 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada and a $500 Amazon gift card!
All photographers will be recognized on the photos displayed.
