Shoot and Score in the Irish Fair of Minnesota photo contest, sponsored by Celtic Journeys!
It is time again to focus your mind's lens on the upcoming Irish Fair of Minnesota photo contest!
The contest is designed to give amateur photographers an opportunity to show their best work as it pertains to Ireland and Irish culture. Any photograph that evokes Ireland or the sense of place and culture that are uniquely Irish is welcome to be entered. Photographs do not have to have been taken in Ireland. A brief summary of the rules appears at the bottom.
Irish Photo Competition Entry Guidelines
- People – One or more persons are dominant subjects in which the photographer portrays an aspect of Irish culture. Winning entries best evoke their subjects’ feelings or spirits.
- Scenery – The mood of a place, or a setting in which a mood is conveyed. There may be people in the photo, but they must be incidental to the picture.
- Studies in Black and White – Photos of people and/or scenery. Winning entries best use black and white imagery to prompt a feeling or response in the viewer.
First place winners in each category receive the special McConnon Award Ribbon, named after the contest founder, and a prize (tbd). Second & third place winners receive ribbons and prizes as well. All contest entries are displayed in the Irish Fair Cultural Tent for the duration of the Fair.
ENTRY DEADLINE: TBD, at designated drop off sites.
