Photography Competition – Closed

€100 First Prize * €50 Second Prize * €50 Third Prize
Sponsored by Renobuild

Competition deadline has been extended to December 7th 2017

This photography competition is the first in the series of projects which explore Ferns and what makes it unique – we would like you to capture the essence of what Ferns means to you. If you were to describe Ferns to an alien, what picture would best describe Ferns for you? You may choose to photograph an individual character, a group of people, an aspect of our built heritage or something quirky which, for you, reflects the Ferns that you know.
