The PES Group in the Committee of the Regions (CoR) is launching a photo competition for Europeans aged 18-108, inspired by the theme of the 2012 European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations.
Amateur photographers are asked to send in a photo that illustrates the way they perceive senior citizens taking an active part in society and developing their potential.
“Life 2.0 – Ready for a new start” seeks to capture various types of turning the challenges of an ageing population into opportunities, be it by discovering new vocations, keeping moving, staying fit and healthy or fostering inter-generational learning.
The competition runs from 1 March until 30 June 2012.
The jury consists of members of the PES Group in the CoR – representing local and regional authorities across the EU – and professionals from the world of photography. It will select the best three photos.
Winners will be awarded a number of substantial prizes. The first prize of the competition consists of two trips for two persons to two European cities and a tablet computer.
