Photography used to be regarded as a hobby, with cameras taken out of their cases to capture special occasions. In recent years taking a photo (or numerous photos) has become part of everyday life. With the invention of the smart phone, photos of friends and family are everyday and numerous. Selfies are at the heart of an immense explosion of photo sharing on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Whatsapp and others.
For International Epilepsy Day 2016, we are pleased to announce a photography competition with the theme ‘Yes, I can’, to demonstrate achievement in overcoming obstacles, or achievement despite obstacles. The best photographs will form the International Epilepsy Day exhibition, taking place in the European Parliament in Strasbourg from Monday to Friday, February 1 to 5, 2016.
All entrants will also be placed in a gallery on the International Epilepsy Day website.
