One Summer’s day

It’s time to get your cameras and mobile phones at the ready for Northern Ireland’s biggest mass participation photographic event.

Once again, the Belfast Telegraph has teamed up with the Northern Ireland Tourist Board (NITB) to launch the fourth annual ‘One Summer’s Day’ photography competition.

For a chance to win a short break in Northern Ireland, courtesy of NITB, they are encourging everyone to become a photographer for the day and take a photograph that illustrates what Northern Ireland means to them – from a family day out at a tourist attraction to a walk in the park with your dog or a hidden gem in your local area.

The unique aspect of this competition is that all photographs have to be taken in Northern Ireland on one particular day – Saturday June 29 – to qualify for entry.

Once taken, the photograph should be sent via email to with a short note explaining the content of the picture and what makes it so special.

Competition entries will be split into three simple categories – one for primary school children, one for secondary school children, and a third category for everyone else. It is important that entrants clearly mark their age and category when submitting their entry.

As well as the chance to win a short break, the top 100 photographs will be included in a special commemorative supplement which will be produced and distributed in September.

Closing date for competition entries is Saturday July 13 with winners to be announced in September.

In the run-up to One Summer’s Day on June 29, the Telegraph and NITB are asking readers to tell us where in Northern Ireland you would like to photograph and why. Send your answer with a photograph of yourself in an email to
