Joy in Ageing - Competition

Christian charity Embracing Age are running their Joy in Ageing competition once again, inviting those aged 50 and over to share poetry, artworks and multimedia celebrating what it means to grow older.

The competition runs until 30th April 2024 and shortlisted works will be published in an anthology to celebrate International Day of Older Persons on 1st October.

Organisers say: "We invite you to capture the essence of ageing in its most joyful forms. We believe this Joy in Ageing competition will serve as a powerful reminder that ageing is a journey filled with laughter, love, and continued discovery. Share your voice, unleash your creativity, and help us rewrite the narrative on ageing – one brushstroke and verse at a time."

For the details, including entry guidelines and where to submit, visit the Joy in Ageing competition page.
