Are you a budding photographer? Love to take a selfie? Agri Aware, Ireland’s independent agri-food educational body wants to see agriculture through your eyes, from a snap of your Mammy’s hearty stew to your favourite view.

The inaugural Agri Aware #agrishoot photography competition was launched today by Irish international rugby player and farmer Sean O’Brien at his farm in Tullow, Co. Carlow.

The competition is part of Agri Aware’s year-long CAP communication campaign entitled “My land, your land – Ireland” celebrating the impact the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) has on people from both urban and rural Ireland.

One lucky winner will have their photograph featured in Agri Aware’s “My land, your land – Ireland” CAP advertising campaign in Dublin Airport. The chosen image will be seen by over 3 million passengers passing through the airport in Spring 2018.

Speaking at the launch of the competition Deirdre O’Shea, Executive Director, Agri Aware said, “We are thrilled to launch our inaugural photo competition. It’s a great opportunity to showcase the very best of Ireland’s farming, food and landscape in a unique and novel way. From life on the farm to your favourite brunch in the city, we want to see what agriculture means to you, and we look forward to seeing the entries pouring in.”
