Last year’s Leinster Leader Christmas Photo Competition was a huge success and once again we are asking readers to capture the magic of Christmas in Kildare for our very special photography competition.

Whether you are an enthusiastic amateur snapper or a veteran camera buff, we are inviting submissions for our “Christmas in Kildare” competition to get a glimpse of Christmas in Kildare through the lenses of local people.

The winning photograph will appear on the front page of the Leinster Leader on Christmas week and it will also appear on

A gallery of photographs by runners-up in the competition will appear in the Leinster Leader over the Christmas period and also online on

This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase your photography skills while at the same time reflecting the wonder of the festive season in your area. What are we looking for? Santa with the kids, a frosty morning, a house lit up for Christmas and more... the possibilities are endless!!

Photographs must be taken between December 1, 2017, and December 20, 2017.

So what are you waiting for? Get snapping your seasonal shots, and email your entries to before December 20, 2017. (Include your name, email address, phone number and put 'Christmas Photo Competition' into the subject line of the email).

Thanks to Whitewater Shopping Centre in Newbridge, there is a €100 voucher on offer for the winner!
