Globally, nearly 100% of adults have tooth decay and oral disease affects 3.9 billion people worldwide, with untreated tooth decay impacting almost half of the world’s population. In 2020, World Cavity-Free Future Day focused on tooth decay as a disease across the life course, with each age group and generation facing different experiences.
In the lead-up to World Cavity-Free Future Day, we launched our ‘Smiles Across Generations’ video competition campaign in which we asked entrants to submit a 30-second video to help us raise awareness on how we can achieve a cavity-free future.
Since launching the competition in July 2020, we received 145 entries from 13 different countries!
Well done, and thank you to everyone for getting behind our competition – we had fun watching all of the brilliant entries. We selected three winners: one for the most ‘Likes’, one for the most ‘Shares’ and one as the ‘Judge’s Choice’, with the latter being decided by an independent panel of five international judges, who voted on the video that was felt to best capture the spirit of the competition’s aim: We’re looking for real conversations between people of any age discussing how they look after their teeth.
Congratulations to our winners…
Most ‘Likes’: Pranjali Vilas Deulkar (India)
Most ‘Shares’: Lahari M (India)
Judge’s Choice: Lindy Sank (Australia)
We hope that you continue to share the videos widely to help spread the importance of a cavity-free future for all, and hope that you’ll join with us in promoting World Cavity-Free Future Day today! For free resources, click here.
This year’s WCFFDay 2020 Campaign
A nivel mundial, casi 100 adultos tienen caries dental y la enfermedad oral afecta a 3.900 millones de personas en todo el mundo, con caries dentales no tratadas afectando a casi la mitad de la población mundial. El Día Mundial del Futuro Libre de Caries de este año se centrará en la caries dental como una enfermedad a lo largo del curso de la vida, con cada grupo de edad y generación enfrentando diferentes experiencias.
We believe that having casual conversations among adults, children and seniors about dental care is a great place to start, so this year we launched a competition, ‘Smiles Across Generations.’
‘Smiles Across Generations’ is a video competition campaign in which we asked entrants to submit a 30-second video to help us raise awareness on how we can achieve a cavity-free future, with the winners being announced on World Cavity-Free Future Day.
We were looking for real conversations between people of any age discussing how they look after their teeth. Entries could be in any language but must be 30 seconds or less (and 100MB max).
We were NOT looking for high-quality, professional videos – videos taken on a mobile phone or tablet are perfect! Click below to view all of the entries we received.
