As a commitment to the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations the Party of European Socialist (PES) Group in the Committee of the Regions dedicates in 2012 its annual photo competition to break stereotypes about ageing.
Under the title "Life 2.0 – Ready for a new start" the fifth edition of the competition invites EU residents of any nationality aged 18 and over to capture the notion of Active Ageing with their cameras.
Amateur photographers are asked to submit pictures illustrating the way they perceive senior citizens taking an active part in society and developing their potential. The competition seeks to capture how the challenges of an ageing population can be turned into opportunities, be it by discovering new vocations, keeping active, staying fit and healthy or fostering inter-generational learning.
The following prizes will be awarded the three best photos:
In addition, winners will be invited to take part in an award ceremony in a date still to be confirmed.
The deadline to participate is June 30th 2012.
