“There ain't no sin and there ain't no virtue. There's just stuff people do.”
Dust Bowl Photography Competition
Entries are invited for the first annual John Steinbeck ‘Dust Bowl’ Photography Competition, celebrating the American writer’s important connection with the Roe Valley. Steinbeck’s grandfather, Samuel Hamilton, was born in Ballykelly on 7th October 1830 and this Ulster heritage deeply influenced Steinbeck’s life and work. His novels treat themes like migration, poverty, homelessness and hardship, but also human relationships, the pursuit of happiness and the power of Nature.
The Competition opens at 9am on Monday 1st February 2021 and closes at 12 noon on Wednesday 31st March 2021.
Winners and commendations announced on Wednesday 14th April 2021. Entry to the competition is free and there are no age limits on participant entry.
