Diabetes Self-Management Blog

November 14 is World Diabetes Day, and in its honor, the University of Florida Division of Pediatric Endocrinology is holding its sixth annual “World Diabetes Day ‘Blue Circle’ Photo Contest.”

The blue circle is the global symbol for diabetes, established by the International Diabetes Federation in 2006 to “give diabetes a common identity” and provide a way of showing support in the fight against the condition.

The contest challenges participants to take a picture with one or more blue circles in it to promote diabetes advocacy. Both single and group shots are welcome, and the blue circle can be worn, painted, formed, incorporated into a pose, or included in whatever other way the entrant envisions.

The contest is open through November 14, with winners to be announced on November 22. Prizes will be awarded for the top three places.
