LightPainting Paradise Competition:

Calendar in support of Iker 2022

Take part in our special competition “Calendar in support of Iker 2022”

Iker is a 5 year old boy born in Vallecas, Madrid who has been unfortunate enough to suffer from a rare disease called cystinosis since birth.

2 years ago, LightPainting Paradise worked with the “Iker’s Fight Against Cystinosis Foundation” through the joint creation of a calendar intended to raise funds to support research into this terrible disease.  In the end, the entire print run of calendars sold out in no time – hopefully this year we can raise even more for their cause!

We will be helping out with another calendar this year, with photos freely donated by our team of ambassadors, but this year we would like to give you the opportunity to be involved as well.

The winning photo for this competition will be one of the photos used in the calendar to support research into cystinosis as well as receiving a very attractive prize.

All proceeds from the sale of the calendars will go to the “Iker’s fight against Cystinosis Foundation”.
