Photo Competition 2013 is NOW CLOSED
This year the National Heritage Week
Photography Competition invites you to
‘Discover the Past. Build the Future’. To enter
all you need to do is to submit an image
which links past, present and future from
your own point of view. Then provide a title and a brief
description for the photo explaining the link.
We are looking for creative representations of
how our heritage shapes our present and our futures.
Your photo should tell a story of events, objects, people,
features of the natural environment or practices of the
past which have shaped who you are today. You may
also wish to broaden your search beyond your personal
scope and into the realm of your community. What
image could you capture that would encapsulate local
pride in a shared heritage? This is part of a broader
initiative to host a conversation about ‘My Heritage’
during National Heritage Week so there are no right or
wrong answers, just add your voice to the conversation!
Please give your image a caption or title and explain
briefly why you took it and how it represents, for you,
the links between past, present and future.
Note: The picture does not have to be taken during Heritage Week but must have been taken in Ireland this year (2013).
The closing date for the competition has been extended until 14th September 2013. The winning images in each category will be decided by a panel of photography and heritage experts and will be announced mid September. Good luck folks!
