"We Have Kidney Cancer" is the Kidney Cancer Association’s 110-page guide for newly diagnosed patients and their families. The nonprofit organization invites people whose lives have been touched directly or indirectly by the disease to submit cover art for the 2012 edition of the book.
“'We Have Kidney Cancer' is our charity’s most popular publication,” says the Association’s Vice President, Carrie Konosky. “We have translations in 12 languages, and this book is also available for the Kindle in English and Turkish.”
Entrants are asked to submit up to three cover designs to the Association’s Facebook page as either high resolution images (JPG, GIF, PNG) or as graphic images by email to Kidney.Cancer(at)Hotmail(dot)com. The deadline for submitting entries is May 7, 2012.
“We reach 70,000 people in more than 100 countries,” Konosky says, “plus another 46,000 on Facebook alone, so this will be a good opportunity for a budding artist to get some global exposure.”
The Association will interview the winning entrant in a podcast that will be made available through the organization’s website, KidneyCancer.org.
