Snappers and shutterbugs, here’s the craic. That's Shanghai is holding a photography competition in conjunction with the Consulate General of Ireland in Shanghai. 

As many of you will know, this photography competition was already launched earlier this year to coincide with St Patrick’s Day, but due to the restrictions it wasn’t possible for many people to participate.

So we’re delighted to re-launch our request for entries! If you already submitted a photo earlier this year then you will still be in the running to win, so no need to send one in again.

The theme is 'Green in Shanghai' – that could be something that reminds you of the Emerald Isle, a flash of the color itself here in the Middle Kingdom, something green and sustainable themed or... well, let inspiration take you where it will. We are very open to creative interpretations!

The competition is split up into two categories: 

  • Under 16

  • 16 and Over 

The winners will be presented with some grand prizes:

  • Over 16: iFLITEK Electronic Reader

  • Under 16: iFLYTEK Translation Pen Gift Set 

  • Runners up in both categories will receive a Consulate of Ireland goodie bag

And all will have their photo displayed at a Consulate event next year.

How to Enter

Entries must be sent to EventsShanghai@dfa.ie with the subject line: *Your Name* Green in Shanghai.

The photo must be attached and entrants must put their name, age, phone number or WeChat username, and where they’re from in the body of the email.

Deadline for entries is November 25.

Entrants are also welcome to post their photo on social media using the hashtags #GreenInShanghai #Ireland and #ThatsShanghai

May the luck of the Irish be with you!
