The finalists of the 10th Anniversary Photography Competition launched earlier this year by Casa Antonia Nursing and Residential Home in Balzan have been selected. The competition attracted 126 entries submitted by 40 participants ranging from professionals, artists and photo enthusiasts.
Participants were invited to capture pictures of elderly persons on the theme “The Elderly – positive aging”. The best 13 entries of the competition will have their work featuring on Casa Antonia’s 2014 Annual Calendar, giving the finalists an exciting opportunity for artistic exposure.
The finalists are (in alphabetical order): Ray Agius, Jonathan Borg, Anthony Rizzo, Denise Scicluna, Joe P. Smith, Bertram Vella, Sandra Vella, Darrin Zammit Lupi, and Z.I. Photography.
The prize award ceremony of Casa Antonia Photo Competition will be held later this month. The winner of the most original photograph will receive €1,000 and a trophy. The second and third placed will receive weekend breaks for two persons at Qawra Palace Hotel on half board basis, while the 4th to 13th placed will receive €50 each.
Opened in 2003, Casa Antonia has established itself as one of Malta’s top nursing and residential homes, offering long-term care, short-stay convalescence, and respite care.
