The Western Development Commission (WDC ) has launched the LookWest.ie My Summer photo competition. The competition, running during July and August, invites people to capture their favourite west of Ireland summer moments and be in with a chance to win the top prize worth €1,500. Photos can be of a great memory, the fun and excitement of attending one of the region’s many festivals or just a lazy, relaxing day that captures the appeal of the West of Ireland. Entry is free, and photos can be uploaded through the competition link on www.lookwest.ie or on the LookWest.ie Facebook page.
Winners will be announced in late August and the WDC has partnered with the five star Lough Eske Castle Hotel, just outside Donegal town, for the top prize of a luxurious weekend for four people.
Runner-up prizes include a Source Sligo Gift Hamper from the award-winning Source Restaurant, Wine Bar and a Cookery School in Sligo town, a piece of handmade jewellery from Mayo-based jewellery designer Victoria Foutz and a gift voucher from McCambridge’s, Galway’s family owned deli and fine foods store. Voters will also be rewarded with prizes including T-shirts from county Clare-based, Emerald surfwear, and tour vouchers from Galway-based Segway Adventures.
