How To Enter Our Competition?

We have no set theme for our photo competition but we do love pictures taken within our delivery areas and pictures that reflect the nature of our business. The winning photos will be used in our 2023 Lambe’s Oil Calendar so we would love to receive a variety of colourful photos showcasing the different seasons and photos taken in and around our delivery areas in Laois, Offaly, Westmeath, and Kildare.

Photos can be of local attractions, photos of nature, farming, animals, or your photos of life after lockdown. 

The overall winning photograph will take pride of place as the featured photo on the cover of the calendar in 2023 and we also display all entries on our social media channels (crediting the photographer) and they may also be used throughout the year for marketing purposes

Can I enter Lambe’s Oil Photo Competition?

Our competition is open to all photographers of all skill levels, so once you can aim and click, you’re in!

Entrants under 18 years of age must have parental / guardian consent.

Written consent must be obtained from any person featured in the photo or by a parent if the person is under 18 in advance of submitting the photo for entry.

This Bit is Important!!

We ask that all photos submitted are high resolution up to a maximum of 10MB for print and taken in Landscape orientation to suit the design of our calendar. Unfortunately, we receive many photos taken on mobile cameras which can sometimes be too low in resolution for print so please ensure the photographs are clear.

Many great photos are taken for use on social media but we do ask that all photos are free from watermarks, signatures, date stamps, and any social media filters/lenses.

It is assumed by entering the competition you have read and accepted our Competition rules / Terms & Conditions

Is there a Prize??

Yes, there will be 12 prizes in total.

Each of the winners will have their photographs and accreditation published in the 2023 Lambe’s Oil Calendar which will be distributed around the midlands counties of Laois, Offaly, Westmeath and Kildare.

The winning photographs will also be featured on the LambesOil.ie website, our Facebook Page , Twitter and Instagram accounts.

The 1st Prize winner will receive a Lambe’s Oil Gift Voucher worth €500 to use against a delivery of Home Heating Oil within our delivery area or to top up petrol or diesel in our forecourt. The winning photograph will also be the feature photo published on the cover of the calendar!

Each of the 11 runners up will receive a €100 Lambe’s Oil voucher which can be redeemed towards Home Heating Oil or against Petrol / Diesel in our Forecourt in Cloncollig Industrial Estate, Tullamore.
