The GAA Museum photo competition wants you to capture a shot of GAA life this summer

Photography Competition Celebrating the GAA Museum’s 20th Anniversary


The GAA Museum turns 20 in 2018 and as part of its anniversary programme, we’re running an Instagram photography competition. With the theme ‘the GAA is in our DNA’, we invite entrants in each category to capture and share how Gaelic games are at the beating heart of Irish life. We’re looking to capture a snapshot of GAA life this summer, so images must be taken and shared between Friday 27th July to Monday 6th August 2018.

While action photos from games are welcome, you should consider going beyond this to explore the GAA’s core values of community identity, inclusiveness, respect, player welfare and teamwork.

In essence, show us what the GAA means to you.
