Derek Smyth is a finalist in Lesser Spotted Ulster Photographic Competition.
05th December 2011
Derek Smyth was named as one of the 12 finalists in the 2011 Ulster Television (UTV) program "Lesser Spotted Ulster" photographic competition with his image "Tranquil Errigal". Presenter, Joe Mahon said: “When we launched the “Lesser Spotted Snapper” competition in the autumn of 2011 we really didn’t know what to expect. Two months and more than 6,000 photographs later, and we were simply overwhelmed".

“It left our judging panel with what seemed like an insurmountable task – to choose just twelve photographs for a UTV 2012 calendar which would reflect the quality and variety of entries and, even more impossibly perhaps, to select one photograph that would stand out from all the other thousands of entries as our overall winner."

Below Derek is presented with a framed print of his entry "Tranquil Errigal" by the host Joe Mahon at a presentation held at the UTV Studios in Belfast.
