An exciting new project to bring together sport stars and young people with epilepsy has been launched by the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE). Stand up for epilepsy is inviting people to submit images of young people with epilepsy taking part in sport alongside sports personalities. So if you have links with a local sports celebrity why not see if they’d like to get involved? All they need to do is let you take part in a training session alongside them and agree to be photographed.
The ILAE wants to show everyone that having epilepsy doesn’t have to get in the way of leading a full and active life. It needs ‘live action’ photos that are at least 1.5mb. If chosen your image could be displayed at the ILAE’s London European Epilepsy Congress in September 2012.
To find out more about how you can get involved you can visit the Stand Up For Epilepsy Facebook page or follow the campaign on Twitter @StandUp4Epileps
Photos should be submitted, along with consent forms and a short caption by Friday 30 March 2012. Further guidance and downloadable consent forms are available on the ILAE’s London Conference website.
