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 how challenges become opportunities for ageing people, 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. The three best photos will be selected.
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.
