All NNLM SEA members – if you’re not a member and wish to join, you can do so here.

What Do I Have to Do?

For the month of October, we want you to share health memes, created by YOU! Here’s how you can create one:

Select one of the images below or use a free stock image from PixabayUnsplash, or other source.

  1. No copyrighted images will be accepted.
  2. Twitter images should be a width/height: minimum 600 x 335 pixels to maximum 1200 x 675 pixels. The aspect ratio should be 16:9 with a maximum image size of 15mb for Twitter.
  3. Facebook images should be at a maximum 1200 x 630 pixels.

Create your health meme. You can use a free service such as imgflip to create your meme.

  1. Please make sure your memes are appropriate and respectful.
  2. Any determined to be inappropriate will be removed.

Names of players will be entered into a lottery for a prize listed below. Individuals can submit THREE different health themed memes to get three chances at winning! Start NOW and submit through October 31!

Looking for Inspiration?

Feel free to use one of these images to create a health meme if you are unable to find a free image:
