Longford County Arts Office announces exciting new photography competition

Longford County Arts Officer Fergus Kennedy, Cllr Peggy Nolan and local photographer Shelley Corcoran.

Photographers in Longford wishing to enter the Longford Landscapes competition should do so before 5pm this Saturday, April 13.

The competition encourages local photographers to submit photos they have taken of landscapes or streetscapes in county Longford.

The county is blessed with a huge number of amateur and professional photographers, many of whom have a collection of beautiful photos of various parts of Longford.

The winner of this competition stands to gain €750 in prize money, plus a framed citation for the winning entry.

There will also be €350 plus framed citations for two runners-up. All entries will feature in an exhibition in May 2019.

The competition is open to professional and amateur photographers. Emphasis will be given by the adjudicators to photographs that capture the beauty of our towns, villages and countryside in a new and refreshing way.

When one thinks of the beauty of Longford’s Mall or the villages of Newtown- cashel, Abbeyshrule or Ardagh, it is easy to appreciate the variety and scope for great photographs.

Photographs need not have been taken specifically for this competition as organisers are aware that photographers may have gems stored away in boxes or on hard drives.

It is only necessary that the images are original, be by the photographer and have been taken in County Longford.

Only submissions by e-mail at the following address will be accepted: longfordlandscapes@ gmail.com.
