Design First Global Antibiotic Resistance Symbol Competition - Win 2,000 Euros!
On the occasion of the celebration of the European Antibiotic Awareness Day (EAAD) in Stockholm, the Joint Action on Antimicrobial Resistance and Healthcare-Associated Infections (EU-JAMRAI) has launched a design contest to find a symbol of the threat against antibiotic resistance.
This contest is not about creating another logo. EU-JAMRAI is looking for something tangible that anyone can make at home and everyone, anywhere can wear; rather like the AIDS ribbon.
The contest is open to individuals no matter their background or age. Participants who like science, have a creative mind or want to make a change raising awareness about the global threat of antibiotic resistance are welcomed to enter this contest. Entries will be accepted until the 31st of March 2020, and the winner will be announced next summer. All the contest rules are available at eu-jamrai.eu/symbol-contest
The jury will be multidisciplinary and multisectoral, including representatives from EU-JAMRAI and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), other members of its stakeholder forum, scientists, regulatory bodies, patient organizations.
This design contest is one of the activities developed by EU-JAMRAI to promote the prudent use of antibiotics in order to stunt the development of resistant bacteria and keep these wonder drugs effective. Co-funded by the European Union Health Programme, EU-JAMRAI brings together 44 partners and more than 40 stakeholders. Under the motto “bringing the gap between declarations and actions”, EU-JAMRAI mission is fostering synergies among EU Member States by developing and implementing effective One Health policies to keep antibiotics working.
