WPC Video Competitions

The World Parkinson Coalition leadership understands the power of video messages. Because of this, we launched a video competition that was held leading up to the WPC 2010 which was an outstanding success. After the success of this competition and enthusiasm of the Parkinson's community for using this medium to communicate and educate, we have decided to find other ways to engage the community with video competitions. We will offer various competitions throughout the years leading up to the third World Parkinson Congress, the WPC 2013, in Montreal, Canada. Stay tuned!

The World Parkinson Coalition launched the Global Parkinson's Pledge on September 28, 2010 at the Opening Ceremony of the WPC 2010. This competition is about the Parkinson's Pledge. We are looking for people who have already signed the pledge or people who will sign the pledge to tell the world, in one minute or less, why they signed the pledge or why they are going to sign the pledge.


This competition is about raising awareness, getting people involved, and having a little fun at the same time. Videos were submitted by many people who support signing the pledge, whether a person with PD, care partner, researcher, clinician, friend...

WPC 2010 Video Competition
The WPC 2010 video competition was designed to raise awareness about Parkinson's and to put a face on the disease while having a little fun at the same time. Nearly 50 people from 15 countries submitted videos. All of them were excellent in their own right and we are honored and pleased to receive these very moving, educational, and diverse submissions from people with Parkinson's, caregivers, friends, and researchers.
