AARP Announces AAJA Caregiving Storytelling Contest

Dear Journalists,

In conjunction with the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA), AARP is pleased to announce a Caregiving Storytelling Contest.

We’re seeking stories from journalists that capture the emotional, financial and personal impacts of caregiving through our cultural perspectives. These stories can be your personal journeys or accounts of other Asian American and Pacific Islanders who have been impacted by caregiving for a loved one.

A winner will be selected from each of these three categories:

  • A mini-documentary (3-5 minutes)
  • A first-person essay (no more than 1,000 words) with 1-3 supplementary photos or images
  • A photo essay (8-15 photos) with artist’s statement (500 words or less)

You must be an AAJA member to submit an entry. The deadline is November 16.
