WPC 2016 Video Competition
Share |

 

The World Parkinson Coalition® understands the power of video messages. We launched the first video competition for the WPC 2010 and were surprised by its outstanding success. We once again opened the video competition for the WPC 2013 and received almost double the amount of submissions from all over the world. 


Watch all 75 videos submitted to the  WPC 2016 Video Competition on YouTube.

 

The WPC 2016 invited ALL members of the global Parkinson's disease community to make a video for the WPC 2016 Video Competition about their experiences living with, treating, researching or caring for people with Parkinson's. Video is a great way to capture and share the power of science, hope, humor, and inspiration. It's also a great way to encourage discourse about a disease that is often misunderstood. Submission for the competition has ended.
