Open voting period for the "People's Choice" award


Last June 2019, the CENIE organized the photography contest "Age does not mean getting old, just growing older", expecting the participation of all those who, through their looks, captured in their photographs, work and wish for an integrating and inclusive society.

The announcement of the photography contest of the General Foundation of the University of Salamanca, framed in the International Centre on Ageing (CENIE), has been a success in terms of participation, as a total of 7,617 works from 103 countries have been presented. 

For the evaluation and selection of the works, the competition also had an exceptional jury made up of Ouka Leele, together with Carmen Dalmau, Miguel Oriola, Carlos de Andrés, María Santoyo and José Luis Amores, who chose, in accordance with the rules of the competition, the 60 finalists who are now competing for the "Public's Choice" award.
