Hello eYeka! Remember Help Cancer Patients contest? A meaningful contest to encourage cancer patients in Japan to share their pain in order to get better treatment. There were many inspiring stories for this contest and we are very thankful for all your wonderful videos. Our client, Shionogi was so delighted with your submissions that they created a website to showcase the winners and some of the best videos here. (the website is in Japanese but trust us that they are all raving good things about your awesome works!).
Here's the feedback from the Shionogi team:
First, let us express our deep appreciation to many creators who participated to our contest. As the theme of the contest, sending a message to cancer patients, was challenging and we did not have any information on entries until the closing date of the contest, we were uncertain whether many creators would participate, and what kind of entries would be submitted. After closing the contest, we are truly delighted to find many high quality and excellent works that blows away our anxiety. We watched all the entries over and over to screen winners. There were many comments and it was extremely difficult to select top three entries. Unfortunately, there were many great entries that were highly evaluated by the Screening Committee besides winners. We will utilize submitted works for our activation to achieve our objective aiming “cancer patients to be released from pain.” Again, thank you very much to all of you who participated to the contest.
Now, let us see the winning videos!

Congratulations on winning the third place. There are patients who cannot talk about pain and suffer and endure from not being able to do things.
