Business to Arts and global financial services law firm and corporate services business, Walkers, have announced the second year of the ‘Walkers Stories from the Docklands Photography Competition’. Members of the public are invited to submit photographs, that fit under one of four themes – architecture, people in motion, life on the water and daily life. Photographs where possible should be taken in the Dublin Docklands area. Due to the current situation, photographs are also welcomed which have been captured in any local area (e.g. home, garden, neighbourhood). There are four categories of entrant:

  • Children 12 years and under
  • Teenagers 13 to 18 years of age
  • Adults
  • Walkers Staff Members

Images may be taken on cameras or mobile phones. The closing date for entries is 20 July 2020.

A panel of experts will convene to select the shortlisted and winning images. Shortlisted and winning images will receive One4all vouchers. A number of selected photographs will be printed and displayed in the Walkers offices, with printed images presented to the participants as a prize per category.

This project builds on the Walkers Photographer-in-Residence programme which is now its third 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 and Walkers staff 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.

2020 sees Walkers celebrating 10 years in Ireland. Garry Ferguson, Managing Partner, Walkers commented:

We are pleased to extend Walkers Photographer-in-Residence programme to also enable members of the public as well as our staff and the students of CBS Westland Row, to enter photographs under this competition. The photography competition theme centres on the architecture, movement of people and life on water in the picturesque and inspirational Dublin Docklands area where new and traditional parts of Dublin come together to form a flourishing centre for commerce, entertainment and urban living.

At the announcement, Andrew Hetherington, Chief Executive, Business to Arts stated:

‘We are very happy to announce the second annual Walkers Stories from the Docklands competition. This project builds on our collaborative partnership with Walkers, Photographer-in-Residence Kate Nolan, CBS Westland Row and the Docklands Arts Fund. The Docklands is continuously evolving and we look forward to receiving submissions that capture the day-to-day life and activities of those who work, live and commute through the area.’
