2010 Photo Competition Winners Announced

Sunday November 21, 2010

Amazing!!!   That is all we can say about all the entries to the DSPCA Photo Competition 2010.

Can we just say too that it was a joyful thing to go through the entries! It’s so wonderful to see how much people love their pets and wild animals.  Thank you so much for sharing your photos and memories with us.   We have been blown away with the fabulous photos that were entered by everyone in all the age categories, everyone of them are brilliant and all deserved to winners. 

We were delighted when Mark Steadman accepted our invitation to be judge as he is an award winning Irish press photographer and has many years experience as a professional photographer.  He has judged photo competitions for companies in the past and is a great supporter of the DSPCA.  It was very tough decision process for our judge, Mark, to narrow it down to three winners per category so a bit thanks from us to Mark for taking on this hard task.

We would also like to thank Canon Ireland and Business Electronic Equipment for the donation of the brilliant prizes for our winners.

So now to what you have all been waiting for, the winners!!!
