About the Contest

As one of Canada’s largest not-for-profit social enterprises with over 115 years of care delivery experience, our SE Health team takes pride in our work's impact on how we live and age in Canada and across the world. As a member of The Global Alliance for the Rights of Older People and as part of our Global Rally awareness campaign, we are running a photo contest from February 27 to March 3 to raise awareness of the rights of older people and encourage intergenerational understanding.

Ageism refers to stereotypes (how we think), prejudice (how we feel) and discrimination (how we act) towards others or oneself based on age. Ageism impacts everyone in our society. And awareness of intergenerational perspectives, biases, and understanding is critical to creating bridges across generations.

Through this photo contest, we aim to create an age-positive library of images that stimulate an increased understanding of ageism. We aim to encourage positive content that tells stories and augments intergenerational empathy, compassion, and cooperation.

Contest Update (March 3, 23): to allow more time to complete your #LoveAllAges Stories submission, the deadline has been extended to March 21, 2023!


There will be two (2) grand prizes of $2,000 awarded to co-winners and five (5) prizes of $1,000 awarded to notable entries.

The Closing date for entries is March 3, 2023. Winning participants will be contacted directly within four weeks after the closing date.


All photographs submitted to the #LoveAllAges Contest will be reviewed by the judging panel and the Contest winners will be selected by the judging panel representatives. All decisions of the judging panel are final.
