Clean Coasts have announced the return of their photography competition, Love Your Coast, which is now in its 15th year.

It offers a prize fund of €5,000, with categories consisting of Coastal Landscape, Heritage and the Coast, Wildlife and the Coast, Underwater and People of the Coast.

Each category highlights different aspects of the Irish coast that make it so unique, from its stunning landscapes and rich heritage to its diverse wildlife and vibrant coastal communities.

Photographers are encouraged to submit their best shots capturing the essence of the Irish coast by August 21 at 5pm.

As part of the competition, Clean Coasts will be sharing valuable resources to help participants hone their skills and enhance their submissions. This includes a guidance document featuring tips from the competition judges, informative blog posts, and detailed information on each category.

Bronagh Moore, Clean Coasts Manager, said: “We are delighted to bring back Love Your Coast for its 15th year, and we couldn’t think of a better day of doing so than Earth Day. For over 20 years, Clean Coasts has been working with communities to preserve the beauty of the Irish coast. This competition celebrates the beauty of our coastal treasures that our communities work hard to protect. We can’t wait to see the incredible entries that photographers will capture this year.”
