Hollister Incorporated Announces 2012 World Ostomy Day Photo Contest Winners

  (February 06, 2013)

Libertyville, IL (PRWEB) February 06, 2013

Hollister Incorporated, a global manufacturer of healthcare products, recently sponsored a photo contest to commemorate 2012 World Ostomy Day. The 12 winning photos are featured in the 2013 World Ostomy Day Calendar, and the winners also received a certificate of recognition and $250 for their local ostomy association.

World Ostomy Day is a global campaign designed to enhance public awareness of the challenges faced by people with ostomies, and the vital work of support groups. The photo contest was sponsored in conjunction with the International Ostomy Association (IOA) and the theme was Lets be Heard! Contest entrants submitted photos showing a person with a colostomy, ileostomy, or urostomy (either themselves, a family member, or a friend) doing what they love to do everything from swimming, to sky diving, to playing with their grandchildren.


Hollister received 186 photo entries from 16 countries, and a panel of judges including a professional photographer and graphic designer selected the winning photos. It was very difficult to choose only 12 winners, said Diane Owen, Global Professional Relations Liaison at Hollister Incorporated. All of the photos we received were so inspiring and full of life!

World Ostomy Day gives us a chance to show the world that having an ostomy doesnt prevent someone from living their life to the fullest, said Ken Aukett, IOA Coordination Committee Member and President of the Ostomy Association of Americas. The photo contest submissions illustrated that fact beautifully.
