Local residents are encouraged to celebrate the grandparents and older people in their lives ahead of Grandparents Day this October, by nominating them for an award or getting involved in local events in the community.

Nominations are now open for the 2018 NSW Grandparent of the Year Local and State Awards, which celebrate the valuable contributions grandparents and seniors make to their families and communities.

The 2018 NSW Grandparents Day Photography Competition is now open!

Amateur and professional photographers alike are urged to spend some time with their grandparents and snap a photo of them in their everyday life for the Grandparents Day Photography Competition.

All residents of NSW are encouraged to enter the competition, no matter whether you’re a beginner, an enthusiast or a professional.

Minister for Ageing Tanya Davies said Grandparents Day is an opportunity to celebrate the invaluable role grandparents and seniors play in improving communities across the State.

“Grandparents dedicate their time and energy to making our communities better and they deserve to be recognised for their tireless efforts,” Mrs Davies said.

“Along with the Awards and photography competition, the NSW Government is funding local events across the state to say thank you to grandparents everywhere.”

NSW Grandparents Day will take place on Sunday 28 October 2018. Nominations for the 2018  Grandparent of the Year Award are open until 17 August 2018.

To submit a nomination for the statewide NSW Grandparent of the Year Award, enter the Photography Competition or for more information visit the Grandparents Day website.
