Me&Peat Photo Contest for Tullamore

As the work of IPS is manifold and includes many matters not only related to “wet”lands but also drained, afforested and degraded peatlands and a lot of broader issues, we have decided to launch a “me&peat – my peatland workplace” photo contest.

This includes photographs of pristine peatlands how we encounter them during summer, but also laboratories, greenhouses, teaching, office work, libraries and other ways how you work with peat and peatlands in your own country. You can take photos, paint or use your phone just to take a quick selfie.

Please send all photos by 1 May to or post them directly in the special competition folder on our Facebook page,

The best 20-30 photos will be on display during the IPS Annual Meetings and “A new conversation on peatlands” Colloquy in Ireland and three winners will be announced on the same occasion. Each person can send up to 3 photos. The final decision on the winners will be made by the IPS Secretariat.
