Readers’ Photography Competition: Our three finalists are revealed

After weeks of deliberations, we can now reveal the three finalists who have been chosen for the 2014 Irish Examiner Readers’ Photography Competition.

Each week two pictures were chosen from the submitted entries and featured on the Forum pages of our Saturday edition of the Irish Examiner.

By the end of 2014 there were 100 amazing photos from which to choose a winner.

The judges have whittled the stunning photos we received down to just three finalists, who are each guaranteed to win €500 worth of camera equipment from Bermingham Cameras.

The overall winner will be announced this Friday 16 January at our Oliver Plunkett Street office in Cork and revealed on the Irish Examiner the following day (Saturday 17 January).

The winner will receive €1500 worth of equipment to continue their blossoming passion for photography.

The 2015 Readers' Photography Competition will also be launched at the prize-giving ceremony.

I did my Leaving Cert in June and have just started college this week, so my school experience is extremely fresh in my memory. I went to Davis College in Mallow and it was a fantastic experience.
