MidlandsIreland.ie has launched a photography competition as part of its drive to promote the Midland Region as a vibrant location in which to live, visit, work, study and do business.
The competition runs until the closing date of September 7 and invites amateur photographers to capture the uniqueness of this region over the summer months with a chance to win the overall prize worth €600.
MidlandsIreland.ie hopes that the entries which capture the uniqueness and magic of the four counties in the region, Laois, Longford, Offaly and Westmeath will communicate a positive message to a global audience of the many attractions and benefits of the Midlands.
Entrants are asked to place their entries in one of four categories, Tourism, Living, Learning and Enterprise which are aligned to the four pillars of the regional brand.
After the closing date of September 7, winners will be announced in October and the overall winner, category winners and placed entries will form a MidlandsIreland.ie Photography Exhibition which will be on display in Local Authority galleries.
MidlandsIreland.ie has partnered with the Sheraton Athlone Hotel for the top prize of a luxurious weekend for two people. The prize, worth almost €600 also includes spa treatments.
Cllr. Micheál Carrigy, Cathaoirleach of the Midland Regional Authority said, “this is a time to celebrate the wonderful natural assets of the region, the thriving arts sector, the strong community spirit that exists within in the midlands and to portray the many enterprises based in the midlands.”
