Seen & Celebrated Photography Competition – Entries Gallery

Waterford Older People’s Council in collaboration with Waterford Libraries and Healthy Waterford recently ran a  photography competition to celebrate the contribution of older people in Waterford City and County. “Seen and Celebrated” is part of the Government of Ireland’s National Keep Well Campaign, supporting people to mind their physical and mental health over the coming months.

Over the last year, older people have been asked to lock themselves away – out of sight – for their own safety. What we want to do now is celebrate the many ways that older people contribute to our society throughout the City and County.

The rules for the competition were simple, just send in a photograph (s) that show older people in a positive and realistic way.

The photographs must show at least one person aged over 50 who must live or work in Waterford and could be in any of the following five themes:

  • Contributing to my community through work or volunteering
  • Old and proud
  • Friends and family
  • Taking part
  • Self-portraits (including selfies)

There are One4All prize vouchers in each theme worth up to €250 for an overall winner.

Please note the Seen and Celebrated Photography Competition is now closed for entries and results will be available in late April.
