The OHCA/OCAL/OCID 2016 Long Term Care Photo Contest

Capturing Life and Caregiving
Through Photography

Win Cash for Facility Activities!

The Ohio Health Care Association, the Ohio Centers for Assisted Living and the Ohio Centers for Intellectual Disabilities (OHCA/OCAL/OCID) are kicking off the 2016 Long Term Care Photo Contest, a program designed to capture life and caregiving through photography.

OHCA/OCAL/OCID member facilities are invited to submit photographs featuring the daily life, activities, loving care and relationships between residents, families and staff. Entries should represent some aspect of daily life in long term care, including residents/staff interactions, activities, therapies, events and pets; resident portraits may also be submitted.

The public will have an opportunity to vote for entries via the OHCA/OCAL/OCID Facebook page; all entries will be available for viewing and voting on Facebook in October, 2016. Facilities submitting entries will be notified of the display dates so they can publicize and solicit votes for their entries.


  • The facility submitting the winning photo will receive $500 toward a pizza party, ice cream social or other social event for residents and staff
  • The facility submitting the second place photo will receive $200 for resident activities or supplies
  • The facility submitting the third place photo will receive $100 for resident activities or supplies

All winners will also receive recognition through Association publications, website and social media.
