An annual ‘Ireland’s Most Christmassy Home’ competition has been launched, and is looking for applicants from Dublin.
Now in its fifth year, energy supplier Energia is calling on households to submit images of their homes decorated for Christmas to potentially be crowned ‘Irelands Most Christmassy Home’.
The winner’s prize money will be doubled this year, to celebrate five years of the competition. This year 1st place will receive €6,000 for their chosen charity, 2nd place will receive €4,000 and 3rd place will receive €2,000.
All winners will be decided by a public vote. Previous winners have donated to charities including Arklow RNLI, Adare Alzheimers and Wexford Homecare Hospice.
This year entrants from Dublin can apply until midnight, Sunday December 6.
All you need to do is snap a photo of your outdoor Christmas decorations and light displays and submit it online, and the shortlist will be announced on December 14. Online voting will then open to the public until Sunday December 20 to select a winner, who will be announced on Monday December 21.
Geoff Codd Head of Marketing and Retail Development, Energia commented; “We are delighted to launch Ireland’s Most Christmassy Home annual competition for 2020. This year more than ever we need to spread some festive cheer at home and empower kindness. The competition has grown in popularity and is now a firm fixture in household calendars all over Ireland.
“The Energia team is looking forward to seeing what households have planned this year and playing a part in raising vital funds for charities across Ireland who need our support in these difficult times”.
