Joy in ageing: art, poetry and multimedia competition

Our friends at Embracing Age were so pleased with the response to last year’s poetry competition on the theme of hope in ageing, that they have decided to expand it to include art and multimedia, as well as poetry this year. CEO Tina English says:

‘Does the thought of ageing bring a smile to your face or a frown to your brow? Many people view ageing negatively, yet it is a universally experienced privilege for those of us with breath still in our lungs. Embracing Age, a Christian charity working towards a world where older people are valued, connected and full of hope, believes there is much joy to experience in growing older. To showcase the vibrant potential of later life, we are thrilled to announce JOY IN AGEING: a dynamic competition celebrating the joys of ageing through poetry, art and multimedia. Unleash your creativity! 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.’

Tina has shared a flyer that has all the information about the competition, along with guidelines for entry. The competition is open to anyone over the age of 50, and they are keen to include people living in care homes and those living alone.

Opening date: 1 February 2024

Closing date: 30 April 2024
