The deadline for Ireland’s first international Food Photography Competition is 8 May!
As part of its 21st programme which runs from 18-21 June, the organisers of Listowel Food Festival are inviting amateur photographers to submit original shots based on the theme of “Irish Artisan Foods”.
“Listowel Food Fair is recognised as the people’s food festival with its main ethos focusing on encouraging and promoting emerging artisan producers. It is therefore fitting that the theme of the first year of the food photography competition ties in with this,” explained photographer Pat Tobin who will sit on the judging panel.
The top 20 shortlisted images selected by the judges will be on display at an open exhibition in the run up and during the Summer Solstice weekend when Ireland’s longest running food festival takes place.
The winning photographer will be officially announced at the festival tasting dinner in the Listowel Arms Hotel on Friday June 19th 2015 and presented with a prize fund of €200. The runner up will be awarded €100.
