Charity Age International is now calling for entries to the 2016 competition

Age International Myanmar-47

The contest calls for striking images of older people from around the world and the submitted images can show anything from the challenges that older people face in developing countries to insights into later life globally.

The theme Strength for Life is open to interpretation, but the charity is looking for thought-provoking captures representing older people from all walks of life.

The competition is free to enter, however Age International welcomes any donations to go towards their vital, life-changing work with vulnerable older people in some of the poorest countries in the world.

Entries can be submitted to the Age International competition page, with the contest closing on Sunday 5 June.

After the closing date a top team of judges including photo editor of The Guardian, Roger Tooth; award-winning Guardian photo journalist David Levene; and news editor at Charity partner Silver Travel Advisor, Roger Bray.

Winning images will be showcased in an exhibition in central London and displayed in an online gallery. A selection of photos will also feature in Age International’s 2017 calendar.

There are two categories: Amateur and Professional. The Amateur category winner will win a class in street photography with a professional photographer and the winner of the Professional category will receive a £500 voucher from Calumet Photographic.
