Belfast Parks Photographic Competition

The Belfast Parks Photographic Competition 2018 is now closed.

Judging takes place mid-October and winners will then be informed.

A prize-giving function will take place on Thursday 25 October and winners will be invited to attend.

Award categories 

The four categories are: 

  • People in our parks: such as people walking, jogging, cycling, attending events or using outdoor gyms, playgrounds, allotments and bowling greens. 
  • Park landscapes: for example landscape shots, animals, trees, plants, buildings and horticultural displays in a recognisable park setting. 
  • Summertime in our parks: for example flowers in bloom, wonderful sunsets and sunrises or those lazy summer days. 
  • Under 16s - photo must have been taken by a person aged 16 years or under.
Your photos must have been taken in one of Belfast City Council’s parks or open spaces and they should focus on our park landscapes, people in our parks or summertime in our parks. 

The winners of each category will receive a share of £1,000 courtesy of the competition sponsor John McQuillan (Contracts) Ltd, a canvas of their winning photograph and also have the opportunity to attend a photographic workshop courtesy of Jessops.
