Shining a spotlight on the incredible Gaucher community


In anticipation of International Gaucher Day, we are hosting an art contest – we want to see your unique creativity to show the world who you are. All you have to do is create an artwork (this could be a painting, a digital picture, or a collage – let your imagination go wild!) of something that is important to you – including the words “#WEAREGAUCHER”, and give it a nice title. This could be a picture of you, your family, your favorite place – the important thing is that it is something you care about.

Need some inspiration? Feel free to use the template below to help bring your masterpiece to life. Throughout September, the public will vote on the submitted pieces, and the winner will be announced on Thursday, 1 October, during the IGD2020 Digital Conference.

The closing date for entries is MONDAY, 28 SEPTEMBER 2020. Don’t forget to share your art on social media and tag CENTOGENE, using the hashtag #WEAREGAUCHER – we want to show the world your work!
