Are you are a keen amateur photographer that loves to capture striking landscapes, migration spectacles or dramatic close-up images of birds and mammals? Would you like to win up to €500 in cash prizes? Then we have the competition for you.
Nothing captures Ireland’s beautiful natural environment better than photograph, so as part of Ireland’s Biodiversity Week 2018 we have 2 photo competitions underway. Our ‘Biodiversity Photographer of the Year’ competition is open to the general public and our ‘Young Biodiversity Photographer of the Year’ competition is open to secondary school students.
The theme for 2018 is ‘Celebrating 25 Years of Action for Biodiversity’. The challenge is to capture an image that reflects an aspect of biodiversity in Ireland.
It could relate to: how action for Biodiversity has changed over the past 25 years, the achievements of actions taken in the past 25 years, reflecting on the past 25 year to develop new action goals for Biodiversity, develop an understanding of the importance of sustainable goals, traditional practices or knowledge relating to Biodiversity, developing people’s understanding the importance and/or fragility of Biodiversity threatened over the past 25 years, and celebrating Biodiversity in all its forms.
All photos must be taken in the month of May and must be submitted by midnight on the 31st May 2018.
The winner will be determined by a judging panel whose decision is final. Judges include Frank Millar, Picture Editor of the Irish Times.
