Long Term Care Photo Contest

The submission portal for the 2024 LTC Photo Contest has closed.

Every day, long term caregivers, residents, families and friends are cultivating kindness. What better way to showcase those stories than by sharing your photos that capture Cultivating Kindness and reflect the acts of thoughtfulness and kindness happening in your care center. FHCA member skilled nursing centers and assisted living facilities are invited to submit photographs for the 2024 Long Term Care Photo Contest, sponsored by Incite Strategic Partners. Your center just might win $500 toward a social event for your residents and staff!

Choose from several categories that reflect the Cultivating Kindness theme when submitting your photo — activities and events, holidays, health-related services or portraits. Photos should depict some aspect of daily life in your care center. For example, you may want to show residents interacting with staff or participating in activities, therapy or special events. You can showcase any aspect of long term care, from medical professionals to recreational entertainment to support services like housekeeping and dietary.

The contest is open to amateur photographers *who live, work or volunteer in an FHCA member skilled nursing center or assisted living facility or are employed by an FHCA member. *Photography should not be the primary form of employment and/or revenue for the individual submitting photographs. There is a limit of 3 photos per member facility. All winning photos, along with the narratives, will be displayed during FHCA's Nurse Leadership Program and the Annual Conference & Trade Show, as well as on FHCA’s website and through additional promotions by FHCA.


FHCA's Photo Contest Judges (includes Florida Leaders and members of the FHCA Public Relations Committee) will select up to 20 finalists, after which the public will have an opportunity to vote for the top three overall winners via the FHCA Facebook page. Everyone entering a photo will be notified by late March, with finalists given instructions on how to participate/promote the Facebook voting contest.


  • The center’s photo earning the most Facebook votes will be selected as the Overall Winner and receive a cash prize of $500.
  • Second Place Overall Winner will receive $300.
  • Third Place Overall Winner will receive $200.
  • Each winning center will have the opportunity to use the cash prizes toward a center-wide pizza party, ice cream social or other event for residents and staff.
  • Each photographer for Overall, Second and Third Place will receive a $50 VISA gift card.
