Capture the Moment – Faces and Places of the 2020 NW200

Amateur and professional photographers alike are invited to help us take a snapshot of race week 2020. This year’s competition entries will be exhibited in Ballymoney Museum from 20th June – 31st August; a prize will be awarded to the best photo based on a popular vote by visitors to the exhibition. All images will then be stored in the Museum Services archives as a captured moment in time.

Terms and Conditions:

The theme of the North West 200 is open to interpretation of the photographers. However, entries should relate in some way to race and its impact on the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough area. Only images taken during race week (Saturday 9th May – Sunday 17th May) 2020 will be accepted.

Entries are limited to two photographs per entrant. All images are to be sent digitally to cms@causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk by 5pm on the 31st May, 2020.

Entry emails need to provide the following information:

  • Name of photographer

  • Contact address of photographer

  • Date of photo

  • Place photograph taken

Images will ideally have a resolution of 600 dpi. Images with a resolution below 300 dpi may not be accepted.

By submitting images to the competition, entrants are conferring image use rights to Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Museum Services. Museum Services will print images for the purpose of the exhibiting entries in Ballymoney Museum and retains the right to use the images for future use within Causeway Coast and Glens Museums, for educational use, for publications, for the preparation of, and use in, exhibitions and displays, and to be uploaded onto the Northern Ireland Archive website. The Museum Service reserves the right not to exhibit images that are deemed inappropriate.
