Wicklow Uplands Council Announces Photographic Competition 2015

Do you like to take photographs while enjoying the outdoors in Wicklow? Wicklow Uplands Council in partnership with the Heritage Office of Wicklow County Council invites you to enter a photographic competition with €500 in prizes.
The theme of the competition is 'From Corries to Coast - A Celebration of Wicklow's Geological Heritage' and photographs may be taken in any location in County Wicklow. The aim of this photographic competition is to acknowledge and celebrate the diversity, beauty and significance of geology in County Wicklow and the contribution it continues to make to our quality of life, our health and our wealth.
It might be a breath-taking view, a mountain conquered, a building, gate or stone wall forged from the local geology, a waterfall, corrie lake or glacial valley. Your image might encapsulate people working with or enjoying the aesthetics of the geological landscape, the choice is yours.
Entries to the competition will form an exhibition which will be launched at Blessington Library on 22nd August 2015 for National Heritage Week www.heritageweek.ie. To enter the competition email a jpeg of your photo(s) to info@wicklowuplands.ie by the closing date on 31st July 2015. for further information visit www.wicklowuplands.ie or see the competition guidelines.
