Alzheimer's Society Remember the Person Photography Competition

08/07/2010

The Alzheimer's Society Remember the Person Photography Competition invites members of the public to capture the reality of what it is like to live with dementia today. Looking beyond the stereotypes of living with the disease, The Alzheimer's Society want to gather a collection of photographs that captures what it really means to live with Alzheimer's Disease and other forms of dementia.

The Alzheimer's Society hope that these photographs will help them to change perceptions of dementia and remind people that behind every diagnosis there is a person living with the condition.

The competition is open to amateur and professional photographers alike. Your photographs may show a person with dementia with their family, enjoying their hobbies, travelling or just doing some chores. But the best photos will be the ones that capture the individual with dementia just being themselves.

The winner of the competition will receive a Panasonic DMC-ZX3 digital camera and an i-Phone. The winner and two runners up will also have their photographs professionally printed and framed.
