Event History

4th Annual Call to Photographers.

Open Photography Call | NCOA

THEME: Aging Well for All—Celebrating the Strength and Wisdom of Women

The National Council on Aging is happy to invite photographers/visual artists to share stories of older women who continue to embrace their lives and contribute to their families and communities as they age. While statistically women live longer than men, they often face unique challenges related to health and financial security. NCOA is working to ensure all women have the resources they need to age well. This contest aims to provide a platform to foster dialogue, artistic expression, and drive innovation in the photographic arts toward the goal of aging well for all. 

“True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows; the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows.” —Audrey Hepburn

1 First Prize: $1,000
