2021 Humans of Dementia Storytelling Contest
Host: HFC
Territory: North America
Theme: Dementia
Eligibility: Calling high school and college students from the United States or Canada
Entry Fees: Free
Prize: Cash Prize
Do you know someone who is living with or someone who has passed from Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia?
Tell their story today for the chance to win a cash prize and attend a virtual celebration with Seth and Lauren. Together, we can shine a light on dementia!

This contest focuses on intergenerational storytelling: talking to a person or people, exchanging memories, and swapping anecdotes all before writing your story and/or taking your photos. Who was the person you are profiling before the devastating effects of Alzheimer's or dementia took hold? This is your chance to tell their story. In telling it, you will be joining a movement of people who are bringing light and awareness to this space. Together, we can shine a light on dementia!

To the extent possible, we encourage entrants to interview the person living with Alzheimer's or dementia. If this is not possible, then we encourage you to talk to and interview family members and/or friends of your loved one. Interviews will be integral to your storytelling as they provide you different perspectives, insight, anecdotes, as well as quotes, all of which will greatly enrich your story and paint a better picture of who you are profiling. Use the voice recorder app on your phone to capture the conversations.

Our Planet: Ourselves
Spring is here! And the beauty of our natural world is ever more apparent. Green shoots are poking through the crust, and once again the earth is warming in the sun. However "the warming earth" carries a more somber message as well - a reminder of the fruits of our greed, the fragility of our planet, the reality of our losses.

Sylvie Hugues, Artistic advisor, proposed 12 photographers to the members of the Executive Committee and comments her choices: "After nearly two centuries of existence, photography still carries its original ontological ambiguity, a duality that makes it both a highly refined technique and a commonplace practice: a clearly identified profession and an acknowledged art form. In 2021, more than ever, the inter-mingling of artists, uses, viewpoints and skills, is reflected in the Prix HSBC."
