Deadline June 23rd: Family Eldercare Photography Contest

Family Eldercare
Call for Entries: The Changing Face of Central Texas: Celebrating Older Americans
Deadline: Saturday, June 23, 2012

Fee: $25 | $15 for entrants 18 and under. Contest open to all.

“Family Eldercare is the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a continuum of professional services to seniors, caregivers and adults with disabilities in Central Texas. Family Eldercare’s mission is to help people live with dignity and independence in their own homes and community for as long as possible – and the mission is more relevant than ever. The Austin-Round Rock metropolitan area has the fastest-growing population of adults aged 55 to 64 and the third fastest-growing population of people 65 and older in the nation! To celebrate Family Eldercare’s 30th Anniversary and raise awareness of the changing and growing needs of older adults in Central Texas, Family Eldercare is sponsoring a professional photography contest.

Photographers are encouraged to submit any image of an older adult, alone or with others, and in all stages of life. The judges will be especially interested in photographs that highlight the focus of Family Eldercare – images depicting the challenges facing older adults as well as images celebrating older adults leading dignified, independent and engaged lives.

This contest is open to all photographers, and all forms of photographic expression are welcome. The contest will culminate in an exhibition and all winning selections will be included in an exhibition catalog.”
