THEME:  “One person caring for another represents life’s greatest value.” JIM ROHN

The National Council on Aging (NCOA) invites photographers and visual artists to share their stories of older adults with their family and caregivers who look after aging loved ones. We provide a platform for artistic expression ​to foster a dialogue and drive innovation in the photographic arts to encourage everyone to care for those who once cared for us, as we believe caregiving for older adults is one of the highest honors.

One -  Second Prize: $500
Four - Awards of Merit: $250 each
Ten - Honorable Mentions $100 each

Special benefit for the winners of the First Prize, Second Prize, and Merit Awards: NCOA will provide a one-year free promotion and support for artists to build a new professional portfolio website using the FolioLink website service for artists and photographers. If you already have a FolioLink website account, this benefit will allow you to have a second website free of charge for two years.
