A NEW competition that was launched last week aims to capture the spirit of the Liberties and the wider Dublin 8 area through photographs.

The Digital Hub, the umbrella group of technology, digital and internet companies, has partnered with one of its enterprise companies, Coinaphoto, for the exciting new photography challenge.

The competition, which is open to everyone aged 18 and over, will showcase the entries to a global audience on Coinaphoto’s website.

Themed ‘Dublin 8 is Great’, the photo challenge will focus on the Liberties and Dublin 8.

All photos submitted to the ‘Dublin 8 is Great’ photo challenge will also be available to a wide range of buyers from across the world through Coinaphoto's digital marketplace.

The photo challenge lasts until November 6 and the winners will be announced on November 16. The winners of the photo challenge will have the chance to win prizes worth up to €550.

Having established their Dublin office at The Digital Hub campus in 2016, Coinaphoto is a vibrant global community and marketplace for real digital photography.

This unique social media platform is designed to share locally relevant stock photography.

It offers users the opportunity to earn money for their original photography and gives them a chance to win prizes through ongoing photo challenges.

Welcoming the collaboration with The Digital Hub, Shahab Mirza, Chief Executive Officer of Coinaphoto, said: “We pride ourselves on locally relevant social stock photography.

“The idea of bringing local photographs from one of the most buzzing districts in the city to our platform is very exciting as it will showcase this wonderful area of Dublin from a very unique perspective.

“Ever since we set up our Dublin office at The Digital Hub, Dublin 8 in 2016, we have been keen to promote and encourage this area that we know and appreciate personally.”

Fiach Mac Conghail, Chief Executive Officer of The Digital Hub, added: “The Digital Hub is passionate about helping innovative digital companies succeed and become an active supporter of the local community.

“We are delighted to partner with Coinaphoto on this exciting photography competition which challenges those who live, work and visit the Dublin 8 area to capture its unique spirit through digital photography.”

Judges of the photo challenge will include Jim Dawson, Digital Design Executive at The Digital Hub, Jurate Tilmanaite, Strategic Partnerships Manager at Coinaphoto and Tim Bingham of Public Lens Street Photography.
