Deadline: 4 May 2019. How do you perceive aging today? Is it the thriving lifestyle of seniors taking on new careers, volunteering or being physically active? Or is it the traditional notion of the harsher realities of aging?
The Council on Aging – Southern California invites all amateur and professional photographers, 18 years of age or older residing in the United States, to use their imagination and share their vision and unique interpretation of the aging experience.
The Aging as Art Photography Show will be juried by a panel of distinguished judges. Selected entries will be displayed at Bowers Museum in Santa Ana July 2019. Aging as Art will also be displayed at Newport Beach Central Library August 2019.
The Aging as Art Photography Show depicts the diversity, dignity, and challenges of what living a long life means today.
We are privileged to have an esteemed panel of jurors to view the entries and select the contest winners.
