Council buildings in the frame for competition
The public is invited to submit photographic entries for a cash prize competition to mark the 50th anniversary of County Hall.
Cork County Council is inviting images of other public buildings throughout the county, including office build- ings, libraries, fire stations, swimming pools, tourist attractions, and town halls, among others.
Entitled “Your Council Buildings”, the images submitted will form part of a digital exhibition which will tour county libraries.
The initiative carries cash prizes totalling €500 for each of the council divisions — North, South and West Cork — with each outright winner receiving €300.
Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr Declan Hurley, urged the public to be creative and think about areas where Cork County Council and its buildings play a part in their community.
“The council provides a broad range of services across all of our towns and villages. I am asking everyone to get their cameras or phones and take an image which reflects that work,” he added.
The closing date isJune 30 and judging will take place shortly afterwards.
All entrants will also be invited to County Hall for a prizegiving ceremony.
