2019 "On the Rise" Featured Survivor/Caregiver Applications

Postby O Stoma Mia » Thu Oct 19, 2017 1:35 pm

It looks like Colon Club is now accepting applications for the 2019 competition for "Featured Survivors/Caregivers":

The on-line application form is here:

https://colondar.wufoo.com/forms/q6feos0lkm5mn/

Does anyone know anything more about this? The application form has changed significantly from last year's form but I cannot find any explanation for these changes or any formal announcement. Does anyone know what is going on?

If it's like it was last year, the deadline for applications this time around will be at the end of February 2018.

Thanks

Thanks for bringing this up, OSM. The application has actually changed very little, but it's a lot more professional looking than it has been in years past -- it looked rather generic and was not branded, so we cleaned it up a little bit. There are three changes: a) we are now accepting applications from caregivers as well as from survivors; b) we indicate that models must be present for the entire duration of the shoot and ask for confirmation of that; and c) we ask about the willingness to help fundraise. On the Rise has morphed from the days of the Colondar, and we are getting a lot more of them in the hands of doctors, nurses, and medical facilities....but there's a cost to that.

If anyone has any questions about the process or needs more information, I'd be happy to talk through it -- feel free to PM me or email me at chris@colonclub.com.
