The RNLI Wicklow Town Fund Raising Committee is excited to announce a photo contest, open to all who love the awe-inspiring beauty and heritage of our picturesque town on the
Irish Sea. There are two Submission Themes, Wonderful Winter Wicklow and Wicklow Town – Between Sky and Sea.
The submission deadline, is 1 AUGUST 2021, and digital colour
images may be sent by email to WicklowPix@aol.com. Full submission instructions, including FAQ’s, are available on Facebook page WicklowPix2021; on our own Wicklow RNLI Fundraising Branch Facebook page; or by calling 089-220-5880.
Each Photographer can submit up to three of their own images. Twelve Winners will be selected by a panel of local Wicklow RNLI Crew, and winning photographs will be published as the front covers of our 2021 Christmas Cards, Note Cards and Post Cards. Additionally, winners will receive a lovely framed print of their winning photograph and a gorgeous medal.
‘This is a wonderful opportunity for us to recognize the incredible talent of our local photographic community while supporting our Wicklow Town RNLI station, and 100% of card sales will go directly to local Station operations. All production costs have already been donated’, said Jill Clancy Harrold, member and past Chairperson of the local Fundraising Committee. ‘We are hoping to be able to make a substantial contribution to our Station on behalf of the Wicklow community’.
Gregg Fisher, also a member of the Fundraising Committee, is inspired by the Project. ‘Our Christmas Cards are sent all over the world, and this is a wonderful showcase for Wicklow Town and the photographers involved. I hope that everyone will check out
Facebook #WicklowPix2021 for the submission instructions and FAQ’s, or call 089-220-5880 with any questions at all!’
