We wanted to start the day here at Photo Fest Ireland by sharing our delight on the news that Reseanne Lynch won the 1st Alliance Française Photography Award last Thursday. Roseanne Lynch receives a flight to Paris for a 2 week stay at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris a French course at the AF, a €600 grant courtesy of Ireland Fund of France and a one-to-one tutorial with Vermillon Design.
The finalists included Joby Hickey, Doreen Kennedy, and Jean-Luc Morales. The advisory committee of the gallery of the Alliance Francaise is composed of: Margaret Brown, Helen Carey, Tessa Giblin, Johnnie Gratton, Anthony Haughey, and Tanya Kiang.
It has to be said that Claire Bourgeois, Director of the Alliance Française Dublin, has been working hard in the last years to promote photography, making their Cafe-gallery a great addition to the cultural life in Dublin. And the creation of the Photography Award serves to prove it.
The exhibition will run until May the 11th at the Alliance.
