Flat Flamingo Photo Contest

flat flamingo balance awareness weekTake "Flat Flamingo" with you... work, school, the park, a concert, hiking, biking, or just sitting in a coffee shop. Have a party and get all your friends together to flaunt your Flat Flamingo!

Take a picture and post it publicly on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram - tag VEDA and use the hashtag #flatflamingo - with a message about why raising awareness about vestibular disorders is important to you (see below for sample messages). When you're done, pass your Flat Flamingo on to a friend and invite them to take their own Flat Flamingo photo. Let's see how many Flat Flamingos we can get on the internet!

Prizes: The top ten photos will be selected - winners receive a KEEN backpack!

  • I have a vestibular disorder that has dramatically affected my life. I learned to cope with the help of the Vestibular Disorders Association. Many people go months or years without getting help.
