NYU Undergraduate and Graduate Students are invited to participate in our 3rd Annual Student Image Competition!


Our theme entitled "Life During the COVID-19 Pandemic" will show visual images that capture and depict how older adults are coping in their daily lives with the COVID-19 pandemic. Images can portray the lifestyles --- daily activities, exercises, and/or routines that older adults have adapted or developed since last March (the outbreak of the pandemic).


Entries will be judged on Impact, Creativity and Story Telling of the image and its depiction of the theme, Life During the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Accompanying your image, tell us in 500-words or less the:

Impact –What does your image evoke and why? E.g. Laughter, sadness, anger, pride, wonder or another intense emotion.

Creativity –Does your entry show any unique actions or habits that you find particularly interesting during a pandemic?

Story Telling –What story does your entry tell about what aging during COVID-19 means to you?


One winner will receive a $500 prize and have their image featured on the NYU Aging Incubator's website, social media platforms, and promotional materials.
