Are you are a keen amateur photographer that loves to capture striking landscapes, migration spectacles or dramatic close-up images of birds and mammals? Would you like to win up to €500 in cash prizes? Then we have the competition for you.

Nothing captures Ireland’s beautiful natural environment better than photograph, so as part of Ireland’s Biodiversity Week 2019 we have 2 photo competitions underway.

Our ‘Biodiversity Photographer of the Year’ competition is open to the general public and our ‘Young Biodiversity Photographer of the Year’ competition is open to secondary school students.

The theme for 2019 is ‘Our Biodiversity, Our Food, Our Health’

The challenge is to capture an image of biodiversity as the foundation for our food and health and a key catalyst to transforming food systems.

This could relate to how biodiversity interacts with the agricultural landscape in Ireland, the physical and mental health values of nature, and more generally photos celebrating biodiversity in all its forms.

All photos must be taken in the month of May and must be submitted by midnight on the 31st May 2019.

The winner will be determined by a judging panel whose decision is final.
