Belfast Parks Photographic Competition

The Belfast Parks Photographic Competition 2018 is now closed.

Judging took place mid-October and winners have been informed.

A prize-giving function for the winners took place on Thursday 25 October.

Award categories 

The four categories were: 

  • People in our parks: such as people walking, jogging, cycling, attending events or using outdoor gyms, playgrounds, allotments and bowling greens. 
  • Park landscapes: for example landscape shots, animals, trees, plants, buildings and horticultural displays in a recognisable park setting. 
  • Summertime in our parks: for example flowers in bloom, wonderful sunsets and sunrises or those lazy summer days. 
  • Under 16s - photo must have been taken by a person aged 16 years or under.
All photos must have been taken in one of Belfast City Council’s parks or open spaces and focus on our park landscapes, people in our parks or summertime in our parks. 

All winners and runners-up of each category receive a share of £1,000 courtesy of the competition sponsor John McQuillan (Contracts) Ltd. They will also receive a canvas of their winning image, kindly provided by Jessops.
