Erin woman has top video in hospital contest

TORONTO - All summer long Holland Bloorview’s filmpossible contest has been bringing visibility to disability.

There were 69 entries, eight judges and thousands of votes that have now produced two grand prize winners: Denise Wilson of Erin claimed top prize for her video As long as its healthy. Annya Miller of Toronto took first place in the photo category for Lucky fin love.

“I was extremely impressed by this year’s talented finalists,” said Christa Haanstra, Holland Bloorview’s Chief of Communications and Public Affairs. “Congratulations to Denise Wilson and Annya Miller.”

Wilson’s two-minute video, As long as it’s healthy, challenges a common saying and encourages people to think differently about disability and differences.

In that category, second prize went to Jennifer Warman of Toronto, with David Fisher of Peterborough in third.

All prizes were donated by Holland Bloorview’s sponsors. All photos and videos can be viewed at

Now in its second year, filmpossible is a video and photo contest created by Holland Bloorview with the theme of “bringing visibility to disability.”

It is open to all ages and abilities, the objective of the contest is to increase awareness of and promote engagement with the issues of childhood disability and to encourage and celebrate those who advocate for childhood disability by sharing their stories.

Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital is Canada’s largest children’s rehabilitation teaching hospital. For over a century, it pioneered treatments, technologies, therapies and programs that give children with disabilities the tools to participate fully in life. Visit for more information.
