Biodiversity Photographer of the Year - photo competition

Our ‘Biodiversity Photographer of the Year’ competition is open to all amateur photographers, whether you take photos as a hobby or it’s your first time out with a camera, all are welcome to enter.

This year we are looking for photographs that celebrate Ireland’s rich web of life. The challenge is to capture an image of some of the biodiversity in your area. Whether you live in the heart of the countryside or the centre of a city, there is wildlife to be found.

Biodiversity doesn’t stop at the shore. Ireland’s marine territory is 10 times larger than the island itself! To celebrate life in our ocean we are delighted to announce an additional prize in this years Biodiversity Photographer of the Year competition! The Ocean Photography category has been kindly sponsored by the Fair Seas Campaign, with a prize of €250 up for grabs!

Do you love exploring our oceans? Whether by boat, on shore or underwater, we welcome photos of all ocean life for this category!


All photos must be taken in May 2022, and submitted by midnight of May 31st.
