Who can enter the contest?
We invite EVERYONE to enter the contest. You have to be over 13 years old, and if you are under 18 years old you will need your parent's permission.
How do I know which category to enter?
The category you enter will depend on the content of your video. If you are an individual, an AYA patient, a cancer survivor, a caregiver or supporter, or just someone who wants to enter a video contest, make a video where you ask a doctor, or any other healthcare professional, the five questions. If you are a doctor, healthcare professional, or a student in a health related field we encourage you to make a video where you demonstrate what you know the answers to the five questions. But, we also think that anyone can Stop A Doc, even another healthcare professional.
There is no place on the entry form to say which category. How will you know?
Make sure your video is clear about which category you are representing.
Do I have to use the Stop A Doc kit for my video?
No, but you may score extra points if you use the prop hand in the downloadable Stop A Doc kit or the Stop A Doc flyer.

Is there anything I can’t put in my video?

How long should my video be?
Your video should be long enough to communicate the message but not over three minutes.
