Older People Speak Out awards - you could win $1000

THE ANNUAL Older People Speak Out (OPSO) media awards are looming. For the past 22 years, the organisation has been rewarding excellence in media coverage of positive ageing.

Track down what you feel is the best news item about positive ageing or the best photo illustrating positive ageing (a picture telling its own story).

You can choose it from any Australian newspaper (print or online), magazine or TV published between September 15, 2014 and October 2, 2015. And you can enter as many times as you like!

How to win $1000? Simply tell OPSO in 50 words or less why you believe a particular media item is an excellent example of positive ageing (hint hint…your Seniors Newspaper will give you lots of choices).

Send your entries in to: People's Choice, OPSO, PO Box 1037, Mt Gravatt, Queensland, 4122.

Don't forget to include the name of the publication and the journalist (he/she will win $500). Entries close on October 2, 2015.

For more information, phone 0412 185 800; email olderpeoplespeakout@gmail.com; or go to their website http://www.opso.com.au

The awards are sponsored by the Australian Government Department of Social Services.
