THEME“One person caring for another represents life’s greatest value.” —JIM ROHN
The National Council on Aging (NCOA) invites photographers and visual artists to share their stories of older adults with their family and caregivers who look after aging loved ones. We provide a platform for artistic expression to foster a dialogue and drive innovation in the photographic arts to encourage everyone to care for those who once cared for us, as we believe caregiving for older adults is one of the highest honors.
