A Photographic ‘Heritage Moment in Time’ Competition in Lismore

This competition will provide an opportunity to record a week in the life of Lismore from a ‘Heritage’ perspective. Heritage is defined as:

“features belonging to the culture of a particular society, such as traditions, languages or buildings, which still exist from the past and which have a historical importance” (Cambridge Dictionary)
“National heritage is defined as monuments, archaeological objects, heritage objects, architectural heritage, flora, fauna, wildlife habitats, landscapes, seascapes, wrecks, geology, heritage gardens and parks and inland waterways” (Heritage Council of Ireland).

Considering these broad parameters, take a photograph during Heritage Week to capture a Heritage Moment in Time for future generations to appreciate and enjoy. The competition is open to anybody who is in Lismore between the 20th-28th August, locals and tourists alike.

Photographs will be judged to a shortlist by an independent panel of local people. The shortlisted pictures will be put on the Heritage Centre Facebook page and the winner decided by public vote. The shortlisted pictures will be the photographs that in the opinion of the judges demonstrate the greatest flair, technique and originality in portraying the heritage of Lismore.

Winners will be announced in September to coincide with Community Service Day at the Heritage Centre. First prize sponsored by Mari Mina Pharmacy, Lismore.
