“These collective images promote the value, acceptance, and inclusion of people with Down syndrome in a very visible way,” the National Down Syndorm Society said in a news release.

The photo of Tomblin was selected from more than 2,400 entries in the NDSS worldwide call for photos. His photo will be shown on two JumboTron screens in the heart of Times Square, thanks to the support of ClearChannel Outdoor.
