Clean Coasts launched their annual Love Your Coast Photography Competition last week as part of Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week.
With a prize fund of €5,000 it is expected to attract huge interest from Ireland’s amateur photographers. There are five categories in this year’s competition; Coastal Heritage; Coastal Landscape; People & the Coast; Wildlife & the Coast; and Underwater.
Speaking about the competition, Annabel FitzGerald, An Taisce’s Coastal Programmes Manager said, “This competition is about capturing the essence of the Irish coast – its extensive beauty and diverse character.
“The photographs will serve as a reminder of the responsibility that we all have in protecting the beauty and diversity of our coastal environment.
“Underwater is a new category in this year’s competition, I am really looking forward to getting a glimpse of our underwater world!”
