Dear Secretary

I hope this email finds you well.  My name is Bryony Byrne and I am the Marketing Officer for Aesthetica Magazine. Aesthetica is one of the UK’s leading arts and culture publications and engages with critical debate and contemporary artistic trends.  I am getting in touch today because we also run a Creative Works Competition and I thought that your members at Navan Camera Club might be interested to learn about the opportunity.

We are really keen to see photographers from Ireland well-represented in the competition and it is a fantastic opportunity for both new and established artists to nurture their reputations on an international scale.  Previous finalists have achieved success and recognition with accolades including: writing commissions from Channel 4, selection to represent Australia in the Florence Biennale, exhibitions at DACS (London), John Martin Gallery (London), Flores Fine Art Gallery (New York), inclusion in the International Drawing Competition exhibition (Poland) and the National Geographic International Photographic exhibition.

Given the versatile nature of photography, it is always a popular choice in the competition and I would be really grateful if you could pass the details below on to your mailing lists and any other interested contacts:
