Managing diabetes is difficult and requires a lot of work every day. But you know that it doesn’t have to hold you back. Part of diabetes awareness means letting friends, family and the general public know that you can live well with this disease and chase your dreams – whatever those dreams may be. So, during Diabetes Awareness Month we invite you to show us – and the broader community – how diabetes doesn’t stop you. How you’re living a full life filled with career accomplishments, exciting adventures and special moments with family.
To make this a bit more fun, we’ve come up with an Instagram contest. To enter, you must post at least 1 photo along with post copy telling the community how you overcome challenges that come with diabetes to live your very own exceptional life. November is an important month for the diabetes community, and we want to see how you are involved in educating, advocating, and making people aware of what life with diabetes is like. Teach us, inspire us, and show us what #DiabetesDoesntStopMe looks like in your real life.
You must use the hashtags #DiabetesDoesntStopMe and #MedtronicDiabetes in your Instagram post. The winner of the contest will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Los Angeles and Medtronic Diabetes headquarters! See below for more contest details.
BE CREATIVE, BE UNIQUE AND HAVE FUN!

HOW IT WORKS
Share Your Image
On your personal Instagram, post a photo of you that shows how you’re not letting diabetes stop you from living your life and pursuing your dreams. In your post, tell your community a little bit about what living with diabetes is really like (day-to-day challenges, etc.) and how you’re not letting it hold you back from living the life you want. Photos can show you participating in your favorite activity, achieving something great, advocating for a cause or just cherishing precious time with friends and family! For increased chances to win, you may submit up to 10 photos! Please make sure you have everyone’s permission to share their image in the photo if your image has identifiable people in it.
All participants must include the hashtags #DiabetesDoesntStopMe and #MedtronicDiabetes to qualify. Contest is open to U.S. residents over the age of 16 living with diabetes. By submitting images and entering the Medtronic #DiabetesDoesntStopMe contest, you give Medtronic permission to re-gram your image and copy on the Medtronic Diabetes Instagram page.
Contest promotional period will run from November 2, 2015 through November 30, 2015 on Instagram.
All qualifying submissions will be entered into a random drawing. One prize winner will be selected. The winner will be contacted the first week of December.
- The winning entrant will receive a trip to Los Angeles, including airfare and a two-night hotel stay as well as reasonable meals and transportation. The winner will spend one day at the Medtronic Northridge, CA office where they’ll have the opportunity to take a manufacturing tour and provide feedback to leaders. For the remainder of the trip, they’ll be able to spend time in Los Angeles as they choose. In exchange, the winner will provide one article about his/her experience during the visit, and authorization for Medtronic to use the article as well as photos from the event in social media and marketing materials.
