Dervilla Keegan from Manorhamilton has been chosen as one of three finalists in the Canon Ireland and TheJournal.ie photography competition.

The competition was open to amateur photographers around Ireland and aims to help budding photographers to take their work to the next level and showcase their portfolio on the popular news site. Entrants were tasked with capturing the essence of their home town or county, showing a unique insight into their area that won’t have been seen before. Dervilla focussed on the scenic views and nature of her local area in Leitrim and Sligo.

Dervilla will now go on to the final stages of the competition, where she will have to shoot five photos that continue this theme. All three finalists will receive training from expert photographer Dave McKane from the Institute of Photography and the use of both an EOS 750D DSLR Camera and the PowerShot SX710 Compact Camera to capture their pictures.

Each week the work of each photographer will be profiled on TheJournal.ie, giving readers the finalists’ unique perspective on modern Ireland through beautiful images.
