B.OLD 2020: be B.OLDer

Share a B.OLD story

People, community groups and organisations all over Queensland are proving age is no barrier — and we need your help to tell their stories. We’re inviting Queenslanders to submit inspiring stories that celebrate the diverse capabilities and contributions of older people and help challenge stereotypes of ageing. 

For a chance to win $1000, share a story that could be produced as a short film as part of our B.OLD 2020: be B.OLDer series. We are looking for stories about older Queenslanders who are active and engaged in community life as volunteers, athletes, artists, entrepreneurs or employees. Or stories about groups, events or activities that celebrate the achievements of older people in Queensland communities. 

Ten stories will be selected by a panel of expert judges and matched with production teams will plan and coordinate filming. The resulting short film series — B.OLD 2020: be B.OLDer— will be screened around the state later this year. 

The deadline for story submissions has been extended to give more Queenslanders time to share a story. Submissions now close Friday 1 May 2020.
