Top Oil launches annual amateur photography competition themed:

‘Fueling Creativity'

Two Waterford winners last year

Top Oil have launched their annual amateur photography competition, themed: ‘Fueling Creativity'. The 12 most creative and unique images will feature in the 2014 Top Oil calendar. Last year Waterford's Eamonn Phelan and Aoife Millea saw their images feature in the calendar as the August and December shots. Eamonn captured a vibrant image of a flying wasp, a sight almost invisible in real life. Aoife's stunning shot features an Irish seaside town wrapped in snow, yet full of colour.
