Last chance for budding Newry photographers to enter competition

Newry and Mourne District Council and the Ring of Gullion AONB project are calling on all budding photographers to get their photos in before the competition deadline of the 4th November.

The theme this year is ‘Why the Ring of Gullion is important to me’, which photographers are free to interpret any way they choose.

This could be our Built, Cultural or even Natural Heritage.

This year, each entrant is asked to give a one sentence description of their photo to explain why the area is important to the photographer. Only photos taken in the Ring of Gullion will be accepted. The 2 categories are under 14’s and over 14’s.

The winning prize is waterproof binoculars worth £100 with the runners up receiving compact pro-tripods. The top pictures will be chosen by a panel of judges.

Photographs entered in the competition will be displayed in Newry in November and Ring of Gullion AONB events over the course of the year. The top 13 will also feature in 2015 Ring of Gullion Calendar.

Therese Hamill, Ring of Gullion AONB Officer explained, “This fantastic amateur photography competition is a great way to showcase the skills of local photographers and the outstanding qualities of the Ring of Gullion Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty(AONB).

“We have extended the deadline to enable entrees to take some fabulous autumn photos of the area,” she added.

The competition closes at 5pm on the 4th November 2014. More information and the rules of entry can be found by visiting and clicking on Whats on or call the Ring of Gullion AONB Officer on 028 30868900.
