Maureen Dunne

The Maureen Dunne Natural World Competition.

This annual competition is held in memory of our former member Sr. Maureen Dunne, who was a keen nature and landscape photographer, and who passed away suddenly in July 1998. Her family kindly donated a cup to be presented to the winner of this annual competition. The theme, 'Natural World', can include animals, flora and fauna. It may also include man-made elements in a minor way, but the image should be in essence depicting the world of nature. More details about the Competition can be found below.

How the Competition is run...

Judging: Entries are judged by an external judge in the three sections, Novice, Intermediate and Advanced.

There will be a winner in each section and the trophy will be awarded to the best overall image submitted.
Former winners are asked to send us copies of their winning entries for the Club’s archives and website.

This year (2023) all our entries were a mixture of prints and projected images, and the competition was judged by Paul Stanley from Dublin Camera Club.
