Sarcoma is a cancer that can be easy to miss. That’s why we’re making many of WA’s buildings and bridges unmissable during this WA Sarcoma Awareness Week.

You’ll find lots of landmarks lit up in the pink and teal of Sock It To Sarcoma!, to shed light on this disease that sneaks up as persistent lumps and pains, often in young people. (Learn more about sarcoma here.)

The landmarks and their dates for lighting up are listed below. To make the most of them, there are two photography competitions you can enter:

  • Selfie/Portrait Prize. Get a picture of yourself in front of one of the illuminated landmarks. Share it on Instagram, and make sure you include these four tags: #shinealightonsarcoma2020 #sockittosarcoma #sarcomaawareness @sockittosarcoma
  • Architecture Prize. Take your best artistic shot of one of the illuminated landmarks. Share it on Instagram, and make sure you include these four tags: #shinealightonsarcoma2020 #sockittosarcoma #sarcomaawareness @sockittosarcoma

We’ll soon be unveiling the prizes that will go to our two winners! The entries will be judged by Fremantle-based international photographer Graham Miller, whose work has been exhibited from the US to Japan to Germany and all across Australia.

We can’t wait to see what you come up with! Good luck.
