Aging as Art: A Juried Photography Show

How do you perceive aging today? Is it the thriving lifestyle of seniors taking on new careers, volunteering or being physically active? Or is it the traditional notion of the harsher realities of aging?

We invite all professional and amateur photographers, 18 years and over, to submit entries that capture the thriving lives of older adults, the beauty in wrinkles, and the dignity of a life well lived.

Photos selected by our esteemed panel of jurors will be exhibited for over 9 million viewers later this year at the Bowers Museum, Newport Beach Central Library and at John Wayne Airport in the Vi Smith Concourse Gallery.
