TRURO - The Colchester East Hants Hospice Society is launching a photo contest challenging people to capture the meaning of life in images.
The contest, themed Focus of Life, is being offered in partnership with Carsand-Mosher Photographic. Submissions to the contest are free and open to people of all ages whether they are amateur or professional photographers.
Hospice offers support in the community to those facing life-threatening illness, death and grieving. It strives to support people during these times in attaining the highest quality of life possible.
"We all strive to live the highest quality of life possible whether it is during end of life or not," said Serena Lewis, hospice social worker, in a news release "and with this contest we aim to get people thinking about what quality of life means to them. What moves them, what inspires them, what supports them on tough days."
The contest was launched Sept. 15 and runs until Nov. 1. Photos submitted will be displayed at hospice and Carsand-Mosher at the Esplanade in Truro, and a panel of judges will select three winning submissions to be made into wall-sized portraits to be displayed permanently at hospice.
The three winning submissions will be revealed at hospice society's annual general meeting on Nov. 29.
