This year Clonakilty Camera Club judged our Photography Competition. Our Summer School Director, Nadine Carroll is a member there and big thanks to her and her friends for judging the competition.

The theme of this year’s competition was Alternative Ireland. We were looking for images that showed Ireland in a new or unusual way, or showed the unseen Ireland. I am sure you will agree the judges did a fine job choosing from the many entries we received from all over the world.

In first place, Bandar:

In second place, Dmytro Seleznov:


Here is what the judges said:

“This is a really well observed and processed image which depicts the mysteriousness and beauty of Ireland.”

In third place, A Oldani:

” This is an unusual image but one which conveys the nitty gritty of life. It is very evocative and conjures up questions in ones mind.”
