With farming at the heart of our borough, Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council is currently in the process of developing an innovative Agriculture Strategy – leading the way as the first council within Northern Ireland taking a strategic approach to the agriculture industry.
Your help is needed! Amateur photographers are invited to put their skills to the test and enter the Farming and Food Photography Competition – with the winning photos being featured within this strategy and online gallery.
There will be eight categories to choose from and each entrant can enter a maximum of two photographs across the following categories:
· Farming Generations and Family
· Farming Innovation
· Food Production
· Local Food
· Young photographer (open to anyone under 16 years of age on the closing date)
The winner of each category will also receive a £50 meal voucher at an independent restaurant or cafe within the Borough.
The competition opens on Saturday 1st May and the closing date is Friday 28th May at 4pm. The competition is for amateur photographers only. All entries should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and should be labelled with your name and category.
