Who We Are
Family Eldercare is the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a continuum of professional services to seniors, caregivers and adults with disabilities in Central Texas. Family Eldercare’s mission is to help people live with dignity and independence in their own homes and community for as long as possible. To celebrate Family Eldercare’s 30th Anniversary and raise awareness of the changing and growing needs of older adults in Central Texas, Family Eldercare is sponsoring this Professional Photography Contest.

A Call For Entries
This contest is open to all photographers, and all forms of photographic expression are welcome. The contest will culminate in an exhibition and all winning selections will be included in an exhibition catalog. Photographers are encouraged to submit any image of an older adult, alone or with others, and in all stages of life. The judges will be especially interested in photographs that highlight the focus of Family Eldercare – images depicting the challenges facing older adults as well as images celebrating older adults leading dignified, independent and engaged lives.

The Judges
Mary Virginia Swanson, Michael O’Brien
Leslie Baldwin, Robb Kendrick

The Awards
From all the entries submitted, the judges will first choose up to 30 Judges Selection Images to be Printed and Framed (at no cost to the winners) and displayed at the Family Eldercare Exhibition to open in September, 2012. The Judges Selection Images will all be featured in an Exhibition Catalog. From among those images, Judges will award: First Prize: $400 cash award, plus the winning image on cover of the Exhibition Catalog. Second Prize: $300 cash award. Third Prize: $200 cash award. Honorable Mention (2): $100 cash award. Best Submission from applicants 18 years of age and younger: $100 cash award. The contest submission closes on June 23, 2012.
