Depictions of the elderly are fewer in our media, especially those of a positive nature. Such is its skewed focus on youth and celebrity. This contest is an exploration of ageing, from stereotype-busting depictions of vitality and creativity in later life, to more sober illustrations of the difficulties that can mount up as the body and mind become older. Back in 2015 we ran a contest in association with the British Society of Gerontology (click here), which might provide some inspiration.
This Premium Contest is worth 1.5x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged AND crowd-rated, with your score from each combined. Find out more about ranking points here. Our Experts are some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best images, and provide valuable feedback to help you improve.
Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.
Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
