A competition open to amateur photographers to find the best picture depicting the beauty of Irish nature was won by Martin Marčišovský, a Slovak living in Ireland, the Sme daily reported at the end of June. His photo, called Ice Age, provides a picturesque view of the frozen coast in the Donegal region in the northern part of Ireland, according to Gulliver Ireland company, the competition’s organiser.

Marčišovský won over thousands of other photographers in the contest prepared by Ireland’s top provider of tourist information and bookings. “The winning photo by Martin Marčišovský is a fantastic example of what foreign and domestic tourists who spend their holiday in Ireland can expect,” said Lisa Fitzpatrick, the company’s economic manager.

Ireland also has an annual competition open to professional and amateur photographers called the GoIreland.com Photography Awards that seeks the best photographs depicting the motif ‘A View on Ireland’.
