Welcome to the Hook Peninsula Photography Competition for 2017. The competition now in its fourth year, is a showcase of outstanding photographs taken by both amateur and established artists.

We are very excited about this year’s competition as we have changed the category choices to Man-Made, Discovering the Hidden, Up Close & Personal, and Hook Peninsula Experience and would encourage you to experiment and let your imagination run free.

Hook Tourism Limited is a community organisation which has been in existence for over 50 years. Its aim is to promote the Hook Peninsula as a premier tourist destination and to protect its unspoiled natural landscape and built heritage. The organisation runs the peninsula tourist office in the village of Duncannon and led on the restoration of the Georgian walled gardens at Tintern Abbey and now operates the ‘Colclough Walled Garden’ as a tourist attraction. Hook Tourism also developed and maintains three woodland walking trails in the woods at Tintern Abbey.

Best of luck!
