Photograph Competition -Clare County Development Plan 2023-2029

19 January 2023

Submission deadline: Friday March 31, 2023

Clare County Council is pleased to announce a Photograph Competition to coincide with the preparation of the Clare County Development Plan 2023-2029, which sets out a strategy for the proper planning and sustainable development of County Clare.


Photographs should reflect County Clare in a post pandemic era and the resilience of its people in facing up to the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic and embracing fresh opportunities created in its wake. Both rural and urban communities have adopted innovative ideas and approaches to bring communities together once again and re-establish the vibrancy and uniqueness of the county and its people, re-affirming the high quality of life enjoyed by those who live, work and visit.

In parallel, our heightened awareness of the environment within which we live has encouraged us all to adapt to and adopt more sustainable practices in all facets of our lives in support of Climate Action. Key stakeholders, service providers, businesses, communities etc. are similarly embracing the challenge of playing their essential part in delivering a sustainable and climate resilient county by adopting more sustainable practices.

Any chapter headings in Volume 1 of the Draft Clare County Development Plan 2023-2029 can be interpreted in photographs which reflect the beauty, uniqueness, diversity and resilience of the place and people of County Clare.


This competition has two categories, under 18 and adult. For the under 18 category, entrants must be aged 17 or younger at the time of the closing date. Proof of age may be requested. The competition is open to amateur photographers only.


The winner in each category (under 18 and adult) will each receive a photography voucher worth €250.00. The winning entries and a selection of other photographs may be published as part of the final Clare County Development Plan 2023-2029.
