In association with its upcoming exhibition My Place – an exhibition of projects on local heritage by school children, South Tipperary County Museum is now inviting submissions from Adults (Over 18's) for a My Place Photography Competition. Participants are asked to submit photographs in colour or black and white in 8 x 10 formats. Pictures should show the photographers understanding of My Place – the heritage of the local area. Emphasis should be on local South Tipperary places. Entries should be submitted to the County Museum, Mick Delahunty Square no later than Friday 19th February. Entries will be displayed in the County Museum and a prize awarded for first, second and third place.
Opening 12th March—May 2010
Every autumn the Education/Outreach department of the County Museum invite students from local primary and secondary schools to research an aspect of the heritage of their local area. Themes vary from year to year and this year, the fourth year of the project, the theme was My Place. Students were asked to look at the buildings, monuments, landscapes, people, events and folklore of their local area and to focus on an aspect that interested them most. Projects are multi disciplinary and cover subjects such as art, history, geography, model making and creative writing.
The My Place Exhibition showcases all of the projects submitted. In 2009 the project was extended to include Community groups.
The project won the Education & Community Engagement Award at the 2009 Museum of the Year Awards.

Regarding Tony Worobiec Weekend
Message from John Hooton to All Club Secretaries
As a follow up to the highly successful lecture by Joe Cornish last October I am now delighted to announce that Mr. Tony Worobiec will be doing a lecture and workshop in Mallow on the weekend 26th/27th February 2010.
Tony is a leading Black and White photographer and an expert in digital black and white printing. He trained as a Fine Artist and headed a large design faculty in Dorset for over 20 years. He has won awards for his work in the UK and internationally. He has exhibited at London's Barbican Gallery and Bradford's National Museum of Photography.
His first published project, 'Rhythms of the Land,' featured monochrome landscapes which focused primarily on the structure of the land and the rhythm it creates. The photographs range from the broad sweeping vistas of the North American landscape to the intimate details of the coastline near his Dorset home.
Whilst Tony steadfastly continues to work with scanned film, he warmly embraces the digital revolution. A regular feature writer for various magazines both here in the UK and the US, he has particularly sought to connect traditional darkroom workers with digital alternatives. He has also recognised that working digitally has opened many new avenues which allow the photographer to explore issues that could not have been contemplated using more traditional methods.
On Friday 26th Tony will be doing a lecture and showing some of his own work and on Saturday 27th he will be hosting a workshop where he will go through the process of converting and printing black and white images.
Cost for lecture (open to all) is €7 and tickets are available at the door.
The workshop on Saturday is limited to 30 and must be pre-booked. The cost of the workshop is €25.
Lecture and workshop booked together €30
