Video Challenge 2016

Living with thalassaemia: The Video Challenge competition continues for a second year!

Join the 2016 Video Challenge competition and let your imagination flow!

TIF is holding its special “Living with Thalassemia Video Challenge” for a second consecutive year, asking members of the thalassaemia community to share videos relating to thalassaemia that will spread a positive, hopeful, or inspiring message.

The TIF video-sharing platform, designed with a primary focus on connecting thalassaemia patients around the world, constitutes one of TIF’s most powerful projects. The aim is to motivate patients, providing them with an incentive to upload videos in a contest that will culminate with the publication of the winning videos during May, the month of the International Thalassaemia Day!

Participants are asked to upload a 2-5 minute video about their thoughts or experiences living with thalassaemia. Participants can unleash their creative spirit with short films, fiction stories or animation videos about thalassaemia. The possibilities are endless! By sharing stories, patients and their families will help to create a virtual community where they can connect and gain support from others.

The deadline for the contest is on the 6th of May 2016, with the selection procedure taking place in early May.

More information will be available soon on social media and TIF’s website. So stay tuned—the winning entries will be selected, announced, and shared on social media and in the next issue of TIF magazine.

The prizes granted by Thalassaemia International Federation for this competition are the following:
The first winner - $ 500, 
The second winner - $ 300 
The third winner -  $ 100


Submissions should be sent to with the name and surname of the participant as well as the title of the video in the subject of the email.
