Highlights from the 2020 CHDI HD Therapeutics Conference are now here! This year’s Postcard covers HTT-lowering therapeutics, including an
Amaryllis Photo Festival
Every year after the Amaryllis bulbs have stopped shipping, HSC launches the Amaryllis Photo Festival- a celebration of the season’s Amaryllis and all of the wonderful volunteers, families, and supporters who make the Amaryllis campaign such a success.
Be sure to snap some photos of your Amaryllis throughout the campaign to be included in this year’s festival. Get creative with it- photos can be of the Amaryllis itself, or include family, friends, pets- whatever you decide!
Here’s how it works:
- Snap a photo of your Amaryllis
- Send your photo to email@example.com on or before Wednesday, January 31st, 2024. One entry per person, multiple entries per household allowed
- Due to the high volume of entries, HSC will internally select 20 photos to go on to a community vote
- Vote for your favourite Amaryllis between February 5, 2024, and February 9, 2024 (details to follow)
- Share your photo to your social media feeds to encourage all your friends and family to vote! Use #HSCAmaryllis
- Winner will be announced on February 12, 2024
Stay tuned for more details.
*Submitting a photo to the festival grants HSC permission to use that photo across social media platforms, HSC’s website and printed materials
In the meantime, take a look at the 2022 Amaryllis campaign Photo Festival winners below!
Our winner Mindy F. rallied her supporters and took home top prize with 248 votes!
We’re sure you’ll agree that these little cuties would melt anyone’s heart.
Says Mindy, “This year we purchased three Amaryllis. We have many family members who have been diagnosed with Huntington disease. It is on both my mother’s and father’s side. I have grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins who have been diagnosed. We love supporting this very important cause!”
In second place, with 244 votes – yes, only 4 votes difference – was Jennifer J.!
“This is a photo of my hero – my Papa – Glen Campbell, who passed away from Huntington disease November 8, 2022 at the age of 83. He refused to stop walking until he took he last breathe. RIP.”
Jennifer chose to honour his memory in her photo and we know he would be proud.
Now that the 2022 votes are in, we’re happy to share a photo album of everyone’s entries (it’s a surefire mood lifter).
We will post more stories and photos throughout the year, but for now, another successful Amaryllis campaign has come to an end. Thank you everyone for participating and inspiring hope!
