WDD Photo Contest Winners

We’re joining organizations and universities around the globe to shine a bright light for Diabetes Awareness. Century Tower at UF will be lighted blue throughout Diabetes Awareness Month.

Enter the UF World Diabetes Day Blue Circle Photo Contest!!

People with diabetes, families, friends, healthcare professionals, educators, advocates: This is your chance to be creative and promote diabetes awareness. Blue circles are the global symbol associated with diabetes. We’re challenging you to take a photo that has one or more blue circles in it, and become a diabetes advocate. You can include a blue circle by making it, painting it, posing next to it, or any other way you can imagine. Photos of individuals or groups are welcome.

The contest is open November 1, 2016, to November 30, 2016. Winners will be announced on December 1, and prizes will be awarded to first, second and third places. Follow the link below to enter:
