Last year Athenry credit Union received almost 600 entries for their inaugural photography competition. Based on last year’s success and continued requests from the public, Athenry Credit Union has decided to run the competition again this year. With €500 in prizes up for grabs, Athenry Credit Union expects to see huge interest in the competition.
The competition is open to all ages, whether you are a budding amateur photographer with a camera or if you just enjoy taking some photographs on your phone or smart device.
Philip Lavelle, Marketing Officer for Athenry Credit Union, said they are delighted to launch the Amateur Photography Competition 2021.
“Last year we received many emails and calls from the entrants outlining how they enjoyed exploring and looking through old photos and finding that perfect one to submit. With the continued travel restriction currently in place, we feel this competition will be a highlight to many as they explore all the beauty that Ireland has to offer,” he said.
“Anyone who enters the competition will be in with a chance of getting their hands on one of five amazing prizes on offer. We are encouraging people to take some time to explore and to reflect on previously taken photography moments for that photo to enter,” he added.
You do not need to be a member of Athenry Credit Union to enter the competition. However you must not be a professional photographer. For anyone who intends to participate in the competition, Athenry Credit Union requests that they strictly adhere to the up-to-date Government Guidelines.
