|St. Colman’s Cathedral is celebrating its Centenary this year. Many events have been planned to commemorate and celebrate its 100 year milestone but nothing captures the moment better than a photo!|
|We are inviting all amateur photographers and hobbiests to enter a competition for this special occasion. The theme is naturally “St. Colman’s Cathedral Centenary”.St. Colman’s Cathedral took 47 years to build and it dominates the skyline of Cork Harbour and the town of Cobh. It is an architectural neo-gothic gem, steeped in history. It has been home to many happy and tragic occasions since its construction i.e. weddings, baptismals, spiritual concerts, the funeral cortege for the Lusitania and was the last land-mark seen by almost 2.5 million emigrants before the departed Irish shores since famine times. Many of which would have celebrated their last mass in the Cathedral. If only its walls could talk!All we ask is that the Cathedral features in the main body or backdrop of the photograph. The way you capture the image is up to you i.e. inside or outside the building, protrait, landscape, an event etc.
1st Prize is €100.
In addition the finalists will have their photographs displayed in the Cathedral for the month of August.
The Cathedral gets on average 50,000 visitors annually so it will be great exposure.
Some of the finalists photos will also feature St. Colman’s Cathedral 2020 Calendar.
Closing date: for the competition is Wednesday 10th July 2019
