HFC - Humans of Dementia Storytelling

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

About the Contest & Scholarship:

This contest focuses on storytelling as a tool to drive awareness and inspire change in Alzheimer's disease.  By focusing on the human and not the disease, Humans of Dementia aims to bring light to and elevate the conversation around Alzheimer's disease so we can reduce the stigma and shame often surrounding loved ones living with the disease.

Think of someone in your life who had or still lives with Alzheimer's or related dementia.  Who was the person you are profiling before the devastating effects of Alzheimer's or dementia took hold? This is your chance to tell their story. In telling it, you will be joining a movement of people who are bringing light and awareness to this space. Together, we can shine a light on dementia!

To the extent possible, we encourage entrants to interview the person living with Alzheimer's or dementia. If this is not possible, then we encourage you to talk to and interview family members and/or friends of your loved one. Interviews will be integral to your storytelling as they provide you with different perspectives, insight, anecdotes, as well as quotes, all of which will greatly enrich your story and paint a better picture of who you are profiling.  Use the voice recorder app on your phone to capture the conversations.
