Northern Ireland Young Life and Times Survey 2008

2008 YLT Photo competiton

In 2008 Young Life and Times invited all eligible survey respondents to take part in a photo competition. We asked for pictures that represent the life of 16-year olds in Northern Ireland. Below are the contributions of the three prize winners:

 

  • 1st prize (50): Shannen Heaney

'This picture was taken in June 2008 in Portrush. This picture represents my life in Northern Ireland as it shows me and two of my friends eating pizza on the streets of Portrush. Just like typical teenagers we didn't have a care in the world, and the key to our day was to have a good laugh.'

Photograph by Shannen Heaney, who won the 2008 Young Life and Times photograph competition.  The photograph shows Shannen and friends eating pizza in Portrush.

 

  • 2nd prize (30): Catherine Quinn

'This photo was taken in July 2008. I think it represents my life as a 16 year old as it shows me and my friends having a laugh during the summer months. Although it was freezing that particular day in Bundoran we insisted on wearing shorts and going into the sea! This shows us on our way to the beach wearing sunglasses and acting cool - not having a care in the world what others think...just like a 16 year old should.'

  • 3rd prize (£20): Colin Stevenson

'This picture was taken in January 2008 in Coalisland. This is what I live for... football. Winning the Rannafast Cup showed me that NI is truely aware of talent and it gives rewards to offer that potential.'
