Capture everything ‘age positive’ in a charity photography competition

“It’s good to grow older because…”

WALES’ amateur photographers are invited to take part in an exciting ‘age positive’ charity competition.

Age Cymru is asking photographers young and old to capture the theme ‘it’s good to grow older because…’ with the chance of winning £100 in high street vouchers.

“Grab that camera or phone and send us a picture you’ve taken capturing why you believe it’s good to grow older in Wales,” said Sarah Price, Age Cymru’s Engagement Support Coordinator.

“Our ‘age positive’ message celebrates the contribution older people have made and continue to make to our communities.

“We’re asking entrants to complete the line ‘It’s good to grow older because…’ when they send in their photo.

“We’re hoping for some fun and original images of ageing, which will challenge some of the stereotypes of growing older!

“There’s a separate category for under 16s and we’d love to see lots of entries from young people– so whether you’re a keen amateur photographer or simply enjoy taking snaps on your phone – join in!

‘Who said I’m too old?’ by Meirwen Jones and ‘Family Traditions’ by Joel Dixon were last year’s winning entries.

Could you be the next Age Cymru photography competition winner? Submit your ‘age positive’ images by midnight on Friday 6 November 2015.
