Silver Selfies


As part of our NCBI World Sight Day campaign we are asking people across Ireland to share their Silver Selfies with us.

Grab your phone and get snapping!

People aged 55 and over can take part in this competition and all you have to do is take a selfie with the person in your life who is a sight for sore eyes! It can be a friend, a loved one or even a furry friend. Whoever it is that brightens up your day!

The most important part of this challange is to have fun while helping us to spread the word through your own social media channels, nominate your friend to take their own selfie and tag NCBI in your post so we can follow the volume of pictures.

Don’t forget to use the hashtags

#silverselfie #visionfirst

How to participate?

Email your Silver Selfie to Aileen at, or for more information call Aileen on (01) 882 1973.

The deadline for submitting your photo is Sunday, October 13th.

The silver selfies winner will be chosen on World Sight Day and will win a special photography session with Frank Gavin in Dublin for them and their friends or family.
