Entries are now open for the Life in Pictures Short Film Competition, which aims to promote positive ageing through film and a prize pool of more than $20,000.

Entrants are asked to submit short films that are up to two minutes long and submit stories of triumph, achievement and struggle on themes like love, health care and employment.  

The competition, in its second year, also encourages seniors to get creative, using the competition hashtag #AgeIsJustANumber.   

Life in Pictures has been endorsed by the International Federation on Ageing for the second year, recognising the initiative as an excellent program that encourages a community conversation about getting older.

Last year’s winners included a film by Ruth Kendall called Janet’s New Skills, a comedy about a woman who gains confidence by learning woodworking.

Films will judged in three categories and participants may have the opportunity to attend industry events and workshops, and see their film screened at the Revelation Perth International Film Festival.

Entries close 5pm, Wednesday 30 May 2018. Winners will be announced in July during the festival.

For more and to enter, visit Life in Pictures on the Revelation website.

2016 WA Senior of the Year, actor Jenny Davis, is the ambassador for Life in Pictures, which is held in collaboration by the Department of Communities, Revelation and Screenwest.
