About the Awards

The MACA Media Awards seeks to challenge negative stereotypes towards older people by highlighting examples of balanced and realistic media reporting on older people and ageing.

By holding up media reports that demonstrate that demonstrate there is more to ageing than becoming old, the awards program aims to improve public perceptions of older people.
