 WPC 2016 Grand Prize Winner  WPC 2013 Grand Prize Winner

The World Parkinson Coalition® understands the power of video messages. 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.We launched the first video competition for the WPC 2010 and were surprised by its outstanding success. We continued the competition at WPC 2013 and WPC 2016. You can view the submissions to past Video Competitions on our YouTube Channel.
