Are you are a keen amateur photographer that loves to capture striking landscapes, migration spectacles, fabulous flora, or dramatic close-up images of birds, mammals and insects? 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 a photograph, so as part of Ireland’s Biodiversity Week 2023 we are hosting our 11th Annual Biodiversity Photographer of the Year 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.

Competition Details

All photos must be taken in the month of May 2023, and must be submitted by midnight on the 31st May 2023.

A maximum of 5 entries per participant will be accepted.

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

The winner will receive €500, with second place receiving €300 and third place €200.

We look forward to receiving your entries!
