The Commissioner for Older People for Northern Ireland’s popular Christmas photography competition is back, and this year the theme is Northern Ireland:  A Natural Beauty. 

The photography competition is seeking older people from Newry, Mourne and Down to capture their own interpretation of what they believe to be naturally beautiful about the area in which they live.

This could be photographs of different landmarks across Northern Ireland, home-grown food or even the Northern Irish people. 

 

 

Speaking to Newry Times, the Commissioner for Older People, Eddie Lynch said, “I’m delighted to launch our Christmas photography competition for another year.

“It truly is a great way for older people to showcase their talents and this year’s theme will highlight all that Northern Ireland has to offer. 

“There are some beautiful things about Northern Ireland, whether you believe that to be our people, our sense of humour, our landmarks, scenery or food – the list is endless and I’m really excited to see the beauty of Northern Ireland through the eyes of our older people. 

 

 

“I hope that older people from the Newry, Mourne and Down district council area will get snap happy and show off their photography skills and whatever natural beauty they believe the area in which they live, possesses,” he added.

The winning photograph will be featured on COPNI’s Christmas card and the winner will be invited along to a reception at COPNI where they will receive a £100 food voucher from a popular supermarket and a framed Christmas card which will be presented to them by the Commissioner for Older People, Eddie Lynch.
