Get Snapping To Celebrate Local Wildlife

A new photography competition to promote the discovery and enjoyment of Northern Ireland’s countryside and native wildlife was announced today. The Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) and the Northern Ireland Biodiversity Officers Forum are inviting everyone from across Northern Ireland to submit their photographs for the competition. The photographs must have Northern Ireland’s landscapes or natural world at their heart and can feature people, places, plants or wildlife. The winning images will feature in a wall calendar for 2012 promoting Northern Ireland’s biodiversity and the winning photographers will also receive a framed print of their image. Renny McKeown from NIEA said, “There are two entry levels – an under 18 category and an over 18 category. So there’s every chance that your photograph could be one of the lucky ones to be selected. “The closing date for entry into the competition is Friday 30 September 2011 so if you don’t already have an image you’d like to submit, you have all spring and summer to get snapping and capture your county at its best.” For further information about the competition including details on how to enter, visit]]>
