The National Rural Network launched the 2017 Biodiversity Photo Competition at the National Ploughing Championships 2017. The aim of the competition was to capture an image depicting rural Ireland’s perspective of biodiversity, and to capture wider depictions of what the general public thinks about the issue of biodiversity.

The competition received over 200 entries from all over Ireland. The judging panel comprised of members from: the National Rural Network; the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine; Teagasc; Bird Watch Ireland; the National Parks & Wildlife Service; the National Biodiversity Data Centre; GMIT; and IGFA.
