This year the essay title is: Overcoming the challenges of getting a round with a rheumatic or musculoskeletal disease.

The essay should include how you overcome challenges of moving around in your own house, how you get to work, how you participate in social activities such as meeting up with friends and family or how you go to the cinema or enjoy holidays.

It should be submitted, type written in Microsoft Word on no more than two pages of A4 (Arial 12 point, single line space, adequate frames) and e-mailed to Sarah Rich at This email address is being protected from spambots.
