Youth Photo Competition

The Mind your Melon Photo Competition encouraged young people from across the county to capture photos of their favourite place or landscape in Donegal. Taking a moment to focus on what is going on in nature around us can have a very positive impact on your well-being. The competition received over 300 entries from young people right across the county. Congratulations to all who entered the competition. The below gallery includes 20 finalists and the overall winning entry. You can view all entries here.
