Have you got a photo to beat this one? 

There are only 10 days left to enter the Clean Coasts’ Love Your Coast photography competition - which is celebrating its 10th anniversary. 

The deadline is Saturday, 31st August, at 5pm. 

This is last year’s Cork winner, John Holden from Union Hall, with his ‘Two humpbacks’ photo. For the past 10 years, the ‘Love Your Coast’ competition has been about capturing the essence of the Irish coastline, its beauty and its diverse character. 

Working with communities on the ground, Clean Coasts mission is also to help foster pride in our coastline and wants to see this reflected in the entries. 

With a prize fund of €5,000, it attracts huge interest from Ireland’s amateur photographers each year. 

The five categories in the competition are Coastal Heritage, Coastal Landscape, People & the Coast, Wildlife & the Coast and Underwater.
