Shoot some buildings!

A new six part documentary series is exploring the rich history and heritage of Barrack Street.

To mark the 50th anniversary of the official opening of County Hall, Cork County Council is launching a photography competition.

The Your Council Buildings competition provides a golden opportunity to capture images of other Cork County Council buildings throughout the county.

Photographers are invited to submit images that showcase Council buildings including office buildings, libraries, fire stations, swimming pools, tourist attractions, town halls plus many more.

Mayor of the County of Cork Cllr Declan Hurley is asking people to get creative and think about where Cork County Council and its buildings play a part in their community.

He added: “Cork County 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 a picture of the Council buildings in their area. Your photo could be the winner!”

The competition is free to enter with cash prizes awarded for first place €300, second place is €150 and third place €50 in each of the three divisions, North, South and West Cork.

These nine finalists will then go forward and compete for overall awards of first place where the winner will receive €600, second place will get €250 while third place will win €150.

The closing date for receipt of entries is 30 June with judging taking place shortly afterwards.

All entrants will be invited to the presentation of prizes in County Hall where all the photos submitted will form part of a digital exhibition.

This exhibition will then tour the county libraries throughout the summer.
