Over 700 stunning photos captured in New York and Ireland have been submitted to the newly expanded Aisling Irish Center's photo competition.

The winning photographs will be featured in a Christmas exhibition in the newly expanded Aisling Center in Yonkers.

“This exhibition will not only showcase amazing photographs taken by amateur photographers, but it also signifies the great relationship between people in the local and wider Irish community here in New York and Aisling Irish Community Center," said Órla Kelleher, Executive Director of the Aisling Irish Community Center.

All photographs chosen for display will be developed in color or black and white and will be the same size.

The closing date for receipt of entries was Friday November 15. Photographs chosen for the exhibition will be decided on by a selection committee.
This photographic exhibition will be open to the public by Friday, December 20, 2013.

IrishCentral are happy to announce that we are proudly showcasing some of the best entries below.
