The ninth annual Rare Artist contest is open for submissions, and we've already received a number of incredible entries demonstrating the talents of our community. If you haven't entered your work yet, what are you waiting for? Entering early gives you more time to rally your friends and family to vote for your artwork. The contest will accept entries through December 7th, and visitors to the Facebook gallery can vote for their favorites once every ten days through December 21st. This contest is open to rare disease patients, family members, friends, caregivers and medical professionals, so enter your work and tell your friends today!

Two awards will be given in each category: one to the entry receiving the most votes on Facebook, and the other selected by a panel of rare disease community leaders. Award recipients in each of the four categories will receive the following prizes:

Children (4-11): $100 gift card

Teens (12-18): $250 gift card

Adults (19+): $500 gift card

Adults (19+) - Photography/Digital Art: $500 gift card

Award recipients will have their work displayed during Rare Disease Week on Capital Hill at the Rare Artist reception in Washington, DC on February 28th, 2018. Artists with works chosen for this reception will be eligible for travel stipends to provide the opportunity to see their work displayed on Capitol Hill.
