Winners announced in Laois PPN social inclusion photography competition

Laois PPN have announced the winners of their social inclusion photography competition.

The theme of the competition was ‘What does Social Inclusion mean to you?’.

Groups across the County got snapping to be in with a chance to win one of three Fuji Instax Mini Instant Cameras.

In the end, Suaimhneas Community Childcare, La Leche League and O’Moores Camogie Club were crowned the winners.

Dan Bergin, Laois PPN Resource Worker said: “The photography competition showed that there is a strong social inclusion spirit in Laois with a wide variety of entries.

“Thanks to all the groups that entered the photography competition.

“A special thanks to our judges; Donal O’Shea (Laois PPN Social Inclusion Secretariat Member), Joan Bolger (Laois PPN Social Inclusion Rep) & Naeem Iqbal (Laois PPN Social Inclusion Rep).”

Donal O’Shea, Head Judge and Laois PPN Secretariat Member said: “Well done to all of the participants for forwarding their photos.

“They are all winners in their own right and are making significant contributions to enhancing inclusion in their communities.

“Clearly social inclusion means different things to various people and organisations.

“My own take is that socially inclusive initiatives are those which allow individuals and organisations to thrive to fulfill their full potential.”
