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 should ensure that the people portrayed on the photos are informed and accept that the photos are submitted for the Coloplast Merit Award. The photos will only be used as decision material for the adjudicating committee and not in marketing material from Coloplast afterwards.
