NOTE: Itís up to you if you want to enter any of the contests we list on this page. Itís well known that some photo contest sponsors ask for free commercial use of the winning entries (or sometimes all of the entries!). You donít have to guess who the winner of that contest is. Donít give up any of your rights. If your photo is good enough to win a national contest, itís good enough to earn many dollars for you in the future. So, enter photo contests keeping this in mind.

As part of its 70th anniversary celebration, Mather LifeWays is holding a photo contest to capture images of what people of all ages consider ďAging WellĒ through the lens of the camera.
What does aging well look like? Placing in a cycling, swimming, or foot race? Making healthy food choices? Planting and tending to your first garden? Having fun with friends or family? Volunteering for a cause? Hugging your grandchild? Playing sports with the local club? Mather LifeWays would like to collect images of and celebrate people participating in these and other activities demonstrating how they are aging well
The deadline for submission of no more than three photos per entrant is June 30, 2011.
The entrant of the photo awarded first place will receive a $300 Ritz Camera gift certificate. Second place prize is a Mino HD Flip Camera and the third place prize is a Kodak Digital Photo Frame.
