Invitation to art contest ICPLP

Help scientist understand the enigma of phantom limb pain

​Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology are calling you to take part in an art contest. Use your artistic skills to illustrate phantom limb pain.
​The challenge is to depict how you understand, describe or feel phantom limb pain. You can express this in a drawing, painting, photo, animation, sculpture and/or collage.
Submit your artwork by 6 December 2020 (the deadline is extended).

Phantom limb pain is a vivid and often severe pain originating from a lost extremity. It is estimated that hundreds of thousands of people all over the world suffer from it. However, due to the complexity and individuality of the condition, there is no single definition of phantom limb pain.

On 26-28 May 2021, the world´s first international conference on Phantom Limb Pain will be held in Gothenburg, ICPLP2021.
The winner of the art contest will receive SEK 5000 and free entrance to ICPLP2021. All submissions will be exhibited at the conference.
