Liffey photo competition

A photographic competition has been announced as part of the River Liffey Biodiversity Study commissioned by Kilcullen Community Action.

Nature Walk at Camphill

The Study is now well underway, conducted by ecologist Dr Mary Tubridy (on left above), and has included a number of popular public 'walk & talk' events under the 'Wild Weekend' banner.

The theme of the competition is The Liffey, and photographs should be of the river or its surroundings, on both sides between the boundaries of Bridge Camphill and New Abbey Cemetery.

There are four age categories, three of them for schoolgoers. They are up to 6th Class (2012), up to 3rd Year Post Primary and up to 6th Year, and Adult.

Photographs are accepted as digital images, and should be sent to with a title, your name and contact details. There's a maximum of 30 images per person.

The deadline is 5pm 16 September 2012. Winners will be chosen from shortlisted images, which will be printed and mounted for exhibition in October.

Historical photographs on the same theme are welcome for inclusion in the exhibition, but will not be part of the competition.
