EULAR - The European League Against Rheumatism

Enter our 'Action Shot' photo competition and inspire and motivate others with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs) to become more physically active and 'Move to Improve'.

If you have an RMD you can enter a good quality photograph of yourself participating in your favourite physical activity, exercise or sport with a short statement about how this helps you overcome some of the physical challenges of your condition and how being active improves your life.
Enter now!
We want to encourage as many people as possible to view the ‘Action Shot’ gallery and vote for their favourite photo-story in the competition. Anyone can view and vote. Tell your friends!

What sort of picture should I send? What should I write?
Photographs should be inspiring and clearly show you performing the activity, exercise or sport. Each photograph should be accompanied by a short statement (no more than 100 words) in English describing how the activity has improved your life


The competition is open to all people with RMDs around the world. There are two prize categories for the winners of the online voting:

One for people with RMDs living in EULAR countries only
One for people with RMDs living in non-EULAR countries

The online winner from a EULAR country will win Euros 250, have their picture included in a special 2012 calendar and have the opportunity to attend the EULAR Autumn Conference for People with Arthritis/Rheumatism in Europe (PARE), which is being held in Athens from 25 – 27 November 2011. Travel and accommodation expenses are included in the prize.
The online winner from non-EULAR countries will win the equivalent of Euros 250

Campaign calendar
A panel of independent judges will also select eleven other pictures from EULAR countries and, together with the online winner, these will be made up into a fabulous calendar for 2012 – the year of the Olympics and Paralympics.

The deadline for sending in photos is the 23 September 2011 and the prize of € 250 could be yours (please read Terms and Conditions ). Obviously the earlier entries are submitted, the bigger the chances are that they receive large numbers of votes!

Thank you! in case you have questions, please don't hesitate and write to
