The art contest

Since 2015, the René Touraine Foundation’s Rare Skin Diseases Network has been running a drawing competition to raise public awareness of rare skin diseases, allow patients to express themselves and encourage discussion. 

The drawing competition is an international event open to all! Whether you are patient, professional or just curious, skin concerns us all. Everyone can express their feelings about their own skin, the disease and those of others. 

Each year, different themes related to skin and rare diseases are chosen. The theme chosen for this year is « Ma peau raconte » / « The story of my skin ».

The competition is launched during the Paris Dermatological Day (this year on December 3, 2019) and ends on the occasion of the International Day of Rare Diseases (February 28, 2020).

The jury is composed of patient association representatives, Scientific Committee members of the Rare Skin Diseases Network and interested partners.
