We’re in number one position!  

But to have a shot at the award, we have to keep this position up for another 20 odd days, so for those of you who have not yet voted, we ask you to please spend 1 minute going out of your way to do so, so we can keep our place on the leaderboard and show Australia that our over 60s are a force to be reckoned with on the Internet.  Voting is still open, so click here to vote for Starts at 60 now

For a long time we’ve been told by advertisers how the over 60 is not online savvy.  This is our best opportunity to celebrate you and show the industry how terrific you are, something that is harder than you’d believe in a young-person dominated media industry.
