The Wild Postcard Project

Creating a series of postcards depicting Ireland's biodiversity

The wild things are here. Welcome.


After a difficult judging process of nearly 1,300 entries, we are very excited to announce the 10 winners of the 2016 Wild Postcard Project artwork competition! But first, we have a little confession to make: there are actually 12 winners! In taking into account the judges’ choices, we found it impossible to narrow it down to 10…so we have chosen 11 artworks based on the judges recommendations, and we are also revealing a ‘Founders Choice’ selection, for a total of 12 artworks that will be converted to postcards.


Check out the names of the competition winners on the ‘results page’. We’ll be featuring one winning artwork each day for the next two weeks here on our website, and also on our Facebook and Twitter pages. Also, keep your eyes open for a special showcase of the shortlisted, ‘highly commended’, entries!


Big congratulations to the 12 winners of this year’s competition, and thank you to everyone who took part… we were blown away not only be everyone’s artistic talents, but also in the care taken to depict the beauty, magnificence, and wonder of Ireland’s biodiversity.
