Florida is the Sunshine State and outdoor activities are a way of life. With sun exposure comes the risks of skin cancer. Learn more about protecting the skin, recognizing dangerous signs and symptoms of skin cancer, visiting a dermatologist, and making an impact on your community by entering the “Stop Skin Cancer” Filmmaking Challenge!

 

The Florida Society of Dermatologic Surgeons is excited to team up with the annual Melbourne Independent Filmmakers Festival to present this challenge.

 

Floridians are getting skin cancers that could be prevented. Dermatologists are recognizing and treating this preventable disease. Create a video focused on this problem and submit it.

 

Entries should be 2 minutes or less in length.
