This year, as part of our #SarcoidStories campaign during Sarcoidosis Awareness Month, FSR will have a billboard in Times Square. The billboard in the heart of New York City will be up from March-May 2018 and will bring more awareness about sarcoidosis to the general public. The billboard will display a brief video introducing sarcoidosis and the campaign #SarcoidStories so people who see it can check out the campaign and learn more about the disease and those it affects.

We’re collecting photos of sarcoidosis warriors to display as part of the video billboard, in order to show the many faces of sarcoidosis and give people a better idea of just how many people this affects. If you’d like to be a part of this project, we are collecting headshot-style photos (centered on the face!) of sarcoidosis warriors. Photos should be in color, not blurry, and high resolution.

Submit a photo of yourself so we can show the world the many faces of sarcoidosis!

*Please note*
All photos submitted before 2/10/18 will be shared with an independent production company who is producing the video for the billboard. Depending on the volume of submissions, not all photos may be used in the billboard video. Photo selections will be at the discretion of the production company based upon their requirements. Photos may still be submitted after this deadline for use in the awareness campaign, but will not be submitted to the production company for consideration.
