Each year, Geological Survey Ireland holds a photo competition in honour of George Victor Du Noyer (1817-1869), an Irish geologist, artist and antiquary. Du Noyer began working for the Survey in 1848, and was a prolific documenter of geological landscapes, both via his work in mapping and geology, and in his vivid and detailed watercolours and sketches.
The 2018 Du Noyer Photo Competition will run from Tuesday 5 June until Friday 28 September, see details.
