The awards are presented at a local association meeting with participation of a local representative from Coloplast and if possible an IOA representative.
- Only IOA member associations are eligible to participate
- Entries must be directly concerned with furthering the needs of people with a stoma
- The entries, in English, should be submitted electronically to Coloplast – see information below.
- The decision of the adjudicating committee will be final
The entries should be supported by photographs and if possible press cuttings.
The membership association that submits the entry must ensure that the people portrayed in the submission are informed and accept that the photos and related information is used by Coloplast for the purpose of the Coloplast Merit Award competition. The photos and information in the submission will only be used as a basis for the decision by the adjudicating committee. It will e.g. not be used in marketing materials from Coloplast afterwards.
