Killarney National Park has launched a photographic competition for children aged between 9 and 13.

The judges will select a winner and two runners up and each will receive a National Parks and Wildlife hoodie as well as having their entry reproduced as a canvas photo.

The person who takes the winning photo will receive an A4 notebook and the two runners up will receive an A5 notebook crafted by the team at Muckross Bookbindery and Paper Conservation Workshop.

“The title for the photographic competition is ‘Our History, Our Future’. The theme is tied in to Heritage Week 2022 which is all about the sustainability of built and natural heritage; Killarney National Park has an abundance of both and we want to see your interpretation of our beautiful landscape,” said Rachel Kavanagh who is managing the competition.

“In addition to the photograph, we want to know why you’ve chosen the subject for the image. In no more than 250 words, tell us what the image means to you, what do you see when you look at it and what do you know about the subject of your image.”
The competition is open to young people aged 9 to 13 (inclusive) and the photograph must be taken within the boundaries of the Killarney National Park.

The deadline for submission is 4:30pm August 5 2022. The address for entries is: FAO: Rachel Kavanagh, Killarney House and Gardens Killarney National Park Photographic Competition Muckross Road, Killarney V93 HE3C
