One Summer's Day: Grab a camera, make it snappy

Time’s running out to enter Belfast Telegraph competition

By Lesley-Anne Henry

Amateur photographers are being urged to get snapping as the deadline for our summer competition fast approaches.







One Summer’s Day, launched by the Belfast Telegraph and the Northern Ireland Tourist Board, is asking thousands of people to create a photographic time capsule of summer in the province.

Entries must be in by June 19 — just nine days away — to be in with a chance of winning a family break.

Belfast Telegraph picture editor Gerry FitzGerald said the idea behind the competition is for as many people as possible to capture a place in Northern Ireland that is special to them.

“The photograph should be of a particular place that means something to you, for whatever reason, which we will ask entrants to sepcify,” Gerry said.

“It may involve people or pets, it may be an action shot, or it may just be a beautiful scenic photograph. It’s really up to you.

“Hopefully, when we collate all the entries, we will have a unique snapshopt, or photographic time capsule, of how Northern Ireland looked and what people were doing on one summer’s day in 2010.”

Pauline Gormley from NITB described the competition as a chance to show off Northern Ireland’s hidden gems.

Competition entries will be split into three categories — one for primary school children, one for secondary schools and a third category for everyone else.

All entrants will have the opportunity to have their snap put on tourist website www.discover northernireland.com
