Competition: Stories from the waterside/ Scéalta Ó Thaobh An Uisce
A story writing competition brought to you by the Local Authority Waters Programme in partnership with Inland Fisheries Ireland, The Heritage Council, The Heritage Officers Programme, and Waterways Ireland.
Do you know of a story with a water theme – a story that simply must be told? Here is your opportunity to tell it and to be in with a chance to win one of 20 great prizes totaling €4,000, which will support local businesses.
Your story can be from the past or the present day – that’s up to you. It might be about the wildlife that lives or once lived in or around a waterbody – your story might be about fishing, hunting or just watching nature. There are two formats that you can choose from 1: The Storyteller Tells that Story or 2: Interview of a Storyteller. Also the story can have either of these two themes 1: Memories and Reflection or 2: Folklore and Stories.
The competition is open to all, with two categories: Under-18s and Over-18s. Simply write a story of 600 words or less to enter. Entries may be submitted in either English or Irish. The closing date for entries is 31st May 2020.
There will be 10 Prizes worth €300 each plus, additional 10 prizes worth €100 each.
If you are a lucky winner you can choose from a local provider to do any of the following with family or friends: guided fishing for the family, Zip-lining over a lake, family kayaking adventure, or other water based activity. You can choose for book tokens or arts and crafts tokens if you prefer! Prizes will support local businesses and operators.
