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!
