In a guest blog Mirror Staff Photographer Phil Coburn talks about his recent trip to Dublin:
Thoroughly enjoyed my weekend in Dublin judging The Press Photographers Association of Ireland’s annual awards with Lefteris Pitarakis of the The Associated Press and the esteemed former Irish Times photographer and picture editor, Dermot O’Shea. Great competition with superb photojournalism. Great support and sponsorship from the Allied Irish Bank, too, which puts a decent amount of money behind it and makes the whole thing run extremely smoothly and professionally. The winning photographs of this competition have toured all over the world in the past but more importantly this years winners will also be shown in all the main regional branches of the AIB, bringing really high-quality press  photography to thousands of people who aren’t necessarily photography buffs. It would be wonderful if we could have some similar support and sponsorship for the B.P.P.A. or the P.P.Y. competition on this side of the water.

    A wonderful exhibition Phil. I was privileged to be a judge in the nineties along with Aiden Sullivan. Great photography, brilliantly presented in fabulous company. An enchanted weekend I’ll never forget. So delighted that it is still being upheld in the original style. Well done to all concerned.
