Photo contest gives thanks to Irish-Polish friendship

Last update - Tuesday, July 1, 2014, 11:03 By Metro Éireann

  Forum Polonia is celebrating 10 years of Poland in the European Union with a photography competition under the theme of Irish-Polish friendship.

“There are 122,585 Polish in Ireland, and each of us have our own story and reasons to say ‘thank you’ to Ireland and our Irish neighbours,” say the organisers. “For the warm welcome, for fulfilling our ambitions, for finding love, for job opportunities, and thousands more.

“Our Irish friends would surely have reasons to thank us for being here, too.”

With that in mind, Forum Polonia wants photos that illustrate a ‘thank you’ between Irish and Polish people.

The best 20 photographs will be displayed along with a small description in an exhibition in Dublin later this summer, supported by the Embassy of the Republic of Poland.

The jury will also award four main prizes, including a 10-week photography course, a two-day landscape photography workshop, a photo studio workshop and Adobe Lightroom/Photoshop portrait-retouching workshop.


Entrants can submit up to three photographs to with a brief description explaining how the images portray the theme. The deadline for entries is 14 July 2014.

I agree with the passing, it is acceptable
I disagree with the passing, it is too dangerous
I don\'t have a strong opinion either way
