Organizers of the 2017 FotoMizen Festival want to inspire everyone on the MIzen Peninsula to document their day on Sunday 7th August. Photographs taken and submitted will be collected and assembled into a book and published in time for Christmas. So no matter what is happening anywhere on the Mizen (defined as anywhere west of Ballydehob-Durrus) a photographic record will be here!  This project will illustrate our life and the area that we all know and love, a fitting celebration of our first century as a nation, an exciting chronicle for the next 100 years. So whether you are a professional, a keen enthusiast or someone with a camera phone – take part in this fascinating project. Check out the website for all the details or follow this new festival and the journey to the inaugural event in 2017 on Facebook/FotoMizenFestival & Instagram /fotomizen.
