In association with British Society of Gerontology

Open Rating Results

£3600 in cash prizes to be won

Getting older is a complex process, but it’s all too easy to revert to clichés when it comes to representing old age. In keeping with the British Society of Gerontology’s aim to enhance knowledge about ageing and later life, this challenge is a chance for you to show a more nuanced approach to the subject: we want to see how you’ve captured the multiple realities of ageing...

The brief in detail

Facets to consider might include:

• The joys of ageing
• The problems people associate with ageing
• Confronting fears about ill health
• The ways people plan / don’t plan for the ageing process
• Ageing as a political problem
• Ageing as a worldwide issue: cultural differences and similarities
• How our current society copes with a large ageing population
• Embracing ageing with a healthy mindset

Show us images that will stimulate conversation and make people think about ageing as a concept - this challenge is generously sponsored by the British Society of Gerontology, with £3600 in cash prizes to be won!

"My job is to use photography to get people talking, to get them thinking, and to hopefully, ultimately, get them caring." – Mac Stone

How it works

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.
