A huge and heartfelt thank you to everyone who participated in all the National Portrait Week events around the country for 2015, be it in front of the camera as a model, or behind the camera as a photographer.

Thanks also to those who helped out with the various events locally - including all the assistants and chaperones - and nationally, including Canon - Ireland our generous national sponsor, Photovalue Ltd., who are providing the presentation folders, the media who gave us such great coverage, and OnSight.ie who develop and maintain the website for the event free of charge each year.

And last but not least to all at LauraLynn - Ireland's Children's Hospice - it was a pleasure to raise money for you and to work with you on this venture. There was universal agreement amongst all participants that this was truly a great cause.

We are collating all the donations from all the different events so will keep you updated with the grand total once we have everything added up!
