Ireland has some of the most spectacular and diverse coastline in the world, Clean Coasts engages communities in protecting these beaches, seas and marine life now and for future generations. Clean Coasts launched the Love Your Coast Photography Competition in May during Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week and with a prize fund of €5,000 it attracted huge interest from Ireland’s amateur photographers. There are five categories in the competition; Coastal Heritage, Coastal Landscape, People & the Coast, Wildlife & the Coast and Underwater.
