About the Life in Pictures competition

Life in Pictures is a competition that invites WA people to put together a two minute film to challenge stereotypes of ageing. It aims to encourage people to reflect on how we view elders and to stimulate discussion about positive ageing.

The initiative is a creative collaboration between the Department of Local Government and Communities (DLGC), Revelation Perth International Film Festival and Screenwest, with endorsement from the World Health Organisation and International Federation on Ageing.

There is quite a substantial prize pool, and winning films will also be screened as part of the Revelation Perth International Film Festival in July this year.

Using mobile phones or iPads are fine, so capture your favourite elders in a two minute video! This is a great opportunity to raise awareness of achievements and perspectives and celebrate the rewards of aging. Film entries close 31 May 2017. Visit the Life in Pictures website for more information and to submit your entry.
