We are committed to celebrating later life and the diversity of the older people of Scotland. We invited the public to showcase this through a photography competition.
Our winner was Ken Lindsay of Giffnock with his submission 'The Potter'.
Here's what our judges had to say:
"'The Potter' encapsulated everything that we were looking for in our competition. It’s a beautifully shot photo and the subject really captures the theme of ‘Celebrating Active Older People’. The craft of creating that pot is something that you feel has taken a life time to perfect and the photo condenses that experience perfectly."
Thanks to our competition partner Damart, Ken has won a choice of £1000 or a Weekend away in the Scottish Highlands + £100 of Damart vouchers.

Second Prize of £500 + £75 of Damart vouchers went to Kevin Moulds of Glasgow for his submission 'Still Beautiful' (Right). Third Prize was awarded to Frank Thom of Bishopbriggs for his Celebrating Active Older People entry (Left), who wins £250 + £50 of Damart vouchers.
We would like to thank everyone who entered the competition - what a fantastic selection of photos! Submitted photographs will be used in future issues of Advantage Magazine, in our advice literature, and many more places as we seek to celebrate later life.
Our thanks go to Damart for sponsoring this competition.
