The Ministerial Advisory Council on Ageing (MACA) developed the awards to celebrate media reporting that highlights the real experiences of older people.
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.
