Par-Troy Pharma Firm Kicks Off Video Contest
Annual Heart to Heart contest seeks to inspire couples trying to start a family.
If you've suffered problems with fertility, you have an opportunity to share your story to help people in similar straits.
Parsippany-based Ferring Pharmaceuticals has launched its 2013 Heart to Heart Video Contest, which offers people a chance to win up to $15,000 toward their child’s education by sharing their personal stories. Through May 31, 2013, contestants can submit a creative video that shows the steps they took to achieve the dream of parenthood; videos can be submitted on www.hearttoheartcontest.com.
“Each year, we estimate that 6.1 million women struggle with getting pregnant,” said Joy Lewin of Ferring Pharmaceuticals. “With the Heart to Heart Video Contest, we want to celebrate with our patients who have finally realized their dream of creating a family and offer motivation and support for those who continue to face challenges in becoming pregnant.”
Since 2004, Ferring has invited patients to tell their fertility stories for its My Little Miracle Essay Contest and has donated over $160,000 to help parents pay for their children’s education. This year, Ferring debuts an enhanced contest that features a video submission and engages the public to help select a winner through an online voting period.
Entries will be reviewed by a committee comprised of Ferring employees and individuals from third-party and patient advocacy organizations who will select the top five finalists. The public will then be invited to vote for their favorite video on www.hearttoheartcontest.com. The video submission with the most votes will win $15,000, while the remaining finalists will each win $2,000 toward their child’s education.
