“Old Frame New Picture” competition

The “Old Frame New Picture” competition will challenge the negative and stereotyped ways older people are represented as vulnerable or frail, something that has become even more prevalent during the coronavirus pandemic.

Instead, Old Frame New Picture will celebrate the diversity of older people’s lives and their contributions to society.

Six winning entries will be featured in a digital billboard campaign across Greater Manchester next year, as well as appearing in an online exhibition and featuring in a set of printed postcards.

The best images will also form a new bank of photographs for use by local charities and other third sector organisations in their marketing and communications, providing a positive alternative to stereotyped images. There are also cash prizes. 

The competition runs until 13 November.
