The Clean Coasts’ annual ‘Love Your Coast’ photography competition is now open to submissions to Louth and Meath photographers for its 13th year!

The Love Your Coast competition asks for amateur photographers to capture and celebrate the uniqueness of our coastal communities, environments, or waterways such as its stunning coastline, beautiful beaches, epic cliff faces, and raging rivers.   

Louth and Meath have some of the most spectacular coastlines in the world and Love your Coasting want to encourage people to get out their cameras this summer as they explore the Irish coast and capture its beauty.

2021 saw Louth photographer Adrian McCarthy place third in the People and the Coast category for their photo Saviour of the Sea that was taken on Clogherhead Beach in Drogheda, County Louth.
