2017 Calendar Photography Competition In Support Of Epilepsy Ireland
(up to €2500 worth of prizes to be won)
It’s that time of the year again folks where we at Dublin Photography School run our annual calendar photography competition in support of Epilepsy Ireland. We are delighted to say that it is now in it’s fifth year and is growing from strength to strength. The competition runs from August 25th 2016 to midnight September 25th 2016. We are looking for 12 winning images in total. These images will represent the 12 months of the year in our 2017 calendar. The overall winning image will appear on the cover of the calendar.
The theme is ‘The Four Seasons of Ireland’
What do you feel uniquely represents the true meaning of the four seasons in Ireland? Maybe it is an autumnal leafy park scene, a snowy winter portrait, a sandy beach on a warm spring day, a busy Christmas market, the first buds of springtime, a striking sunset landscape on a summer evening or one of our many rainy days! Let your creativity flow & show us a unique image that expresses one of the four seasons, spring, summer, autumn or winter. Allow your photograph tell a story & let it be the one that stands out from all the others. Think outside the box & look for an interesting & unique approach to what you what to photograph.
Entries can be in colour or black & white, they can be taken during the day or at night & can be taken with any kind of camera, from the smallest compact digital camera to the latest DSLR or even with your smartphone. All images must have been taken in Ireland. The image can be of a person, a place or a thing.
