Du Noyer Visual Arts Competition

Du Noyer Visual Arts Competition

Each year, Geological Survey Ireland holds a photo and visual arts 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.
