We celebrate the ninth year of the Inspirational Arts Photography Award! 

The award is open to students graduating in photography from Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), Griffith College Dublin(GCD), Dún Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology (IADT), and theLimerick School of Art & Design (LSAD). Entry is automatic and is based on the students’ work presented in the Graduate Exhibition of each of the participating colleges. The judge of this year’s award is Ángel Luis González Fernández, founder and director of the PhotoIreland Foundation.

Inspirational Arts, a fine art printing studio based in Dublin, had two goals in mind when it established the Award in 2009. They wanted to give something back to the photography students who have supported them over the years with their custom. In particular, Inspirational Arts wanted to encourage new graduates of photography as they take the first steps of their career after college by providing a showcase for their photography outside of the college context and an entry on their CV.
