Are you a budding photographer? An amateur photography competition will take place this weekend around the Hollyhill, Churchfield, Gurranabraher, Shanakiel and Sunday's Well areas as part of Cork Culture Night.
PhotoGo, a partnership between Gurranbraher Credit Union (GCU) and Sample-Studios, will see two session on Sunday 8 September, where contestants can take photos of whatever they chose, however it must reflect the locality!
Photographs can only be taken during the two sessions allocated at registration and entries need to be digital, taken on either a mobile phone or digital camera. 
There will be two awards: one chosen by a panel and the other by a people's vote. Entries will be shown online from the Wednesday 11 September and voting will finish the day before Culture Night on 19 September. 
The work will then be curated and exhibited in both GCU and Sample-Studios on Cork Culture Night on 20 September. 

How will it work: 
· Registration takes place in Sample-Studios, Churchfield on 8 September 
· The competition will take place over two sessions; 11am-1pm and 3-5pm 
· Registration will take place at 10am for the first session and at 2pm for the second session 
· On registration you will be given a map to show the boundary of the PhotoGo event 
· Entrants will have two hours in which to take a photo within the designated area to be submitted into the competition 
· One photograph per person in digital format may be entered with the location of the submitted shot marked on a map

All children under the age of 18 years and vulnerable adults will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult. On Cork Culture Night, the photos will be exhibited in GCU, Bakers Road where the opening reception will take place and the prize-winners announced. A duplicate exhibition will be held at Sample-Studios where competitors will be invited to collect a personal copy of their photo from the walls. 
The GCU exhibition will then continue for two weeks and the photographs from the exhibition will be available for purchase in aid of ARC Cancer Support House. 
Speaking about the new partnership, Kim-Ling Morris of Sample-Studios said: “This is such a unique community that we have joined and we are delighted to have been given the opportunity to work with Gurranabraher Credit Union on the PhotoGo project. This competition is a great way for people to refresh their thoughts and really take a look at all the interesting and individual aspects of our locality. We’re very much looking forward to seeing our area through the eyes of other people.” 
Gurranabraher Credit Union Chair, Michael O'Connell, said: “We know the artistic talent that abounds in our community and we wanted to give a chance to all amateur photographers to share their gift with a wider audience. We felt when better to show off this talent than on Culture Night. We are delighted to throw open our doors to our community and share these wonderful images of our community.”
