Illustrate Phantom Limb Pain: ICPLP2021 Art Contest

Illustrate Phantom Limb Pain:ICPLP2021 Art Contest


Phantom Limb Pain (PLP) is a prevalent condition after amputation that has intrigued scientists for over a century. PLP can considerably hinder a person’s quality of life and no universally accepted guidelines exist for its prevention and treatment. The aim of the 1st International Conference on Phantom Limb Pain (ICPLP2021) is to bring together world renowned experts on the study and treatment of PLP, and to create a forum for open discussions on competing theories and findings regarding PLP.

ICPLP2021 is dedicated to understanding more about Phantom Limb Pain. Due to the complexity and individuality of the condition, there is no single definition of PLP. Therefore, we would like to invite all audiences to “Illustrate Phantom Limb Pain” and show how they understand, describe, and/or feel Phantom Limb Pain.



Open to all – patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals, artists, students, conference participants, anyone and everyone.



The “Illustrate Phantom Limb Pain” art competition is an open call to everyone to communicate how they understand, describe and/or feel Phantom Limb Pain. We pose a challenge to communicate PLP in an exclusive way.

The illustration can be a drawing, painting, photo, animations, sculpture and/or collage.
