Photography Competition

Capture the Edge and Embrace of Limerick and win a €1,000 camera voucher and the potential for a winning image to appear on a city centre billboard

To celebrate the new Limerick brand Limerick: Atlantic Edge, European Embrace unveiled earlier this year, both amateur and professional photographers are being invited to capture the beautiful contradictions of Limerick’s distinctive character, warm yet gritty; proud yet humble; creative, yet driven.

  • We are looking for images that show a different point of view, a quirky side, and exciting angle to Limerick.
  • What connects you to our tidal river Shannon, the gateway to the Wild Atlantic Way, our beautiful county or the art, culture and history of the city in a way that exemplifies Edge or Embrace?
  • What’s the most exciting or edgy thing you’ve seen in and around Limerick?
  • On a more personal level, what experiences have you witnessed that demonstrates Limerick’s warmth and embrace, particularly during the last challenging few months?

We want to see your images about the things that make Limerick special as a place to live, work and visit. The best images will express the two essential elements at the heart of the Limerick brand: Edge and Embrace.

The competition is divided into two categories with one overall winner in each category.

  1. Amateur Prize: €1,000 voucher for Whelan Cameras, Limerick
  2. Professional Prize: Month long billboard display for winning photo

Up to ten entries from each category will be shortlisted by a panel of judges with shortlisted images also published in the Limerick Leader and online at

One winner from each category (Amateur and Professional) will be selected by public vote through’s Facebook account.

Closing date is midnight on Monday 12 October 2020 so plenty of time to get shooting!
