NCOA's Photo Contest

Help NCOA spread the word about falls prevention by sharing your photos!

Submit your high-quality action photos of older adults participating in a falls prevention program and NCOA and the Falls Free® Initiative will use the photos to promote falls prevention to the media and partners across the country in time for Falls Prevention Awareness Day . Please note that consent forms will be required from people who are identifiable in close-up shots.

All winning photos will be featured on and in NCOA’s newsletters and social media, as well as in national and local press releases. In addition, the top three winners will receive gift cards issued to the person submitting the entry: 1st Prize: $250; 2nd Prize: $150; 3rd Prize: $50. The submitter can then spend the gift card money in whatever manner she/he chooses (for example, keep it, raffle it to a senior group or the coalition, purchase supplies for the coalition, or whatever else might work).

Additional details about the photo contest are on NCOA's website.  Deadline is Aug. 1 at 5 p.m. ET.
