Ageing the bigger picture - photo contest results

Photocrowd in parthership with the British Society of Gerontology have released the winners of their international photo competition focussing on the exploration of the complexities of ageing.

 

The contest brief encouraged photographers to look beyond clichés and show a more nuanced approach to the subject theme of "Ageing the bigger picture".

 

Over 1200 images were submitted from photographers all over the world with cash prizes of £3600 (approximately $5400 USD) in cash prizes awarded.

 

Professor Sheila Peace, president of the British Society of Gerontology, said: “This has been an exciting venture, bringing to our attention the beauty, experience and intergenerational dimensions of global ageing.

 

"Our congratulations to the winners, whom we hope have inspired us all to go on capturing those images that show the value and diversity of our world as we grow older.

 

To have over 1200 photos to consider and to generate more than 200,000 votes is tremendous. Let’s keep being inclusive in embracing these images of ageing.”
