Submissions are now being accepted for FHCA’s Long Term Care Photo Contest, an annual program designed to capture the special moments of long term caregiving through photography. Amateur photographers who live, work or volunteer in an FHCA member skilled nursing center or assisted living facility are invited to submit photographs capturing the daily life, activities and loving care between residents, families and staff.
Photos should depict some aspect of daily life in your care center. Choose from several themes when submitting your photo – activities and events, holidays, health-related services or portraits. For example, you may want to show residents interacting with staff or participating in activities, therapy or special events. You can showcase any aspect of long term care, from medical professionals to recreational entertainment to support services like housekeeping and dietary. Submissions are due to FHCA by February 28, 2017.
A selection committee will narrow down the top finalists, after which the public will have an opportunity to vote for the winners via the FHCA Facebook page. The center’s photo earning the most Facebook votes will be selected as the Overall Winner and receive a cash prize of $500. Overall second and third place winners will also be chosen based on the Facebook vote, with those top-three centers having an opportunity to use the cash prizes toward a center-wide pizza party, ice cream social or other social event for residents and staff. In addition, the winning photos and narratives will be featured during the FHCA 2018 Annual Conference & Trade Show, which takes place July 15-19 at The Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood.
