Age Concern New Zealand is delighted to announce the shortlisted entries in its Patron's Award online photography competition.

We asked both the public and the media to post positive images of older people on our Facebook page and were thrilled to receive more than sixty entries.

Public voting on these has determined a shortlist of ten photographs. Five of these are from the public category and five from the media.

All entries can be viewed on Age Concern New Zealand's Facebook page.


Selected media entries came from publications including The Dominion Post and Number 8 Films. Photographers include Phil Reid, Alison Brown, Ross Giblin, Chris Banks and Ben Watson.

Category winners will be determined by Age Concern Board, staff and invited guests voting on the shortlisted entries at an award ceremony held in Wellington on 30 September, as part of International Day of Older Persons celebrations.

The Age Concern Patron's Award was established in 2009 as a way to challenge ageist attitudes and stereotypes about growing older.
