t’s one of our most popular annual competitions, and it’s not difficult to see why.
Give someone a camera, let them loose in picturesque Greystones, and there’s a very good chance magic will ensue.
Having been won in its debut year by Michael Bialis’ The Perfect Storm, in 2018 by Louis Duffy-Barrett’s Harbour Noir, in 2019 by Liz Cusack’s Cove Gets A Slap, in 2020 by Anne McInerney’s In Flow, and in 2021 by the flawless Rob Lawless andMr Blue Sky, the only downside to our annual Greystones Rocks photography competition is not being able to give every entry that 1st place rosette.
Suffice to say, there’s beauty at every turn. But who will take the Brian Keeley crown for 2022, after the votes are in and the judges have weighted up all the merits and magic involved here? Send your perfect Greystones 2022 pic to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll soon find out. Just one entry per person.
For inspiration, you can take a jump back to Greystones Rocks 2017 here, 2018 here, 2019 here, 2020here and 2021 here. Each one a reminder of just how lucky we are to live here.
The late, great Brian Keeley
We’ve also got to give a shout-out too to our sponsors for 2022’s competition, The Whale, giving people a reason to put on their shoes around here.
Running until September 30th, entries close at 5pm, voting closes at midnight.
Now, go on, get snappy, and celebrate life in The Greatest Feckin’ Town In De Whole Wide World. Voting is in the comment below…
