'Lens A Hand' Amateur Photography Competition

"Lens a Hand" - Photograpy competition & exhibition

For the third year running, Louth Volunteer Centre is combining volunteering and art by organising an amateur photographic competition and exhibition, 'Lens a Hand', aimed at promoting and encouraging volunteering in Louth.

The theme for the competition is "capture the imact of volunteering in Louth" and it will be open to everyone who wishes to enter a photograph of themselves or a friend or colleague volunteering, showcasing the diversity of volunteering in action and illustrating its positive impact in the local community.

Competition will be open from April 1st to15th and prizes will be given for the best entries.

The exhibition, to take place in Drogheda and Dundalk during the month of April, will be an exciting and creative way of sharing the experience of helping others, its benefits and its stories.
Be inspired and enter the competition or you can lens a hand by voting for your favourite picture..

Please note:  Entries will be accepted via our website from 1st April. Pictures may be submitted to us via Facebook/Twitter, however uploading your photo to these sites will reduce the printing quality so the photos wont be included in our exhibition.
