This project builds on the Walkers Photographer-in-Residence programme which is now its second year. In February 2018, Irish photographer Kate Nolan was announced as the Walkers Photographer-in-Residence. The residency includes a series of workshops, where Kate has introduced documentary photography to CBS Westland Row transition year students through ‘story walks’ of the Docklands. The residency supports Business to Arts’ wider programme of activity, which promotes the Arts collaboratively with businesses, artists, audiences and communities.

Garry Ferguson, Managing Partner, Walkers commented:
‘We are immensely proud to support this initiative as an extension of our successful Photographer-in-Residence programme which is a key part of the annual CSR calendar at Walkers. The Docklands is an historic, vibrant and diverse area of Dublin City Centre and we look forward to seeing it captured in the photographs submitted for competition.’

Andrew Hetherington, Chief Executive, Business to Arts stated:
‘As our Docklands Arts Fund programme continues to expand, we are delighted to build on our partnership with Walkers on this new photography competition. Taking the beautiful backdrop of Dublin Docklands as inspiration, we look forward to seeing staff family and student entries that focus on community, neighbourhood and work life in the local area’.
