Prize Winner: 

Ginger Atmosphere, by Camila Carvalho from Seda College, Ireland


 "Camila’s photograph was instantly everyone’s favorite at Dublin and Dubai Coinaphoto offices. We love the setting of this very dreamy composition and thus naturally warmth and calmness shines through the photograph which are the tones of Ireland as a country and people whom have the pleasure of calling it home." - Jurate Tilmanaite


Little Girl in Sunglasses, by Paola Rech from Grafton College, Ireland


 "I chose this picture for the contrast and mood it communicates to the viewer. The black and white is beautiful and street photography is one of the more difficult types of photography to get right, in my opinion. In this picture timing is everything as Paola managed to release the shutter just as the little girl was adjusting her very stylish look. The adults in the picture provide an excellent backdrop and the framing is absolutely perfect." - Anna Maroutian


Building Lego, by Hyunjin Yoo from Cork English Academy, Ireland


"We chose this photo because it really shows how Cork City is bright and colourful even on a dull day! The flamboyant colors on the traditional buildings complement each other in a surprising way. The photo was taken from the school's balcony." - Anita Locke
