As this is a competition across the global peering community, defining individual prizes is not practical. We will therefore nominate a number of photography related prizes that the winner in each category can choose from, suitable to their needs and location.
• 1st Prize – €500 value.
• 2nd Prize – €300 value.
• 3rd Prize – €200 value.

Depending on the submissions received, INEX may also define additional prize categories but these will not impact the main prize allocation or value.

So get snapping that winning shot and share it with us.


In celebration of 25 years of INEX connecting networks and people, we are running the Solas INEX Photography Competition.

All in the peering community are invited to enter and share their best pictures with us. We welcome entries from those within networks who engage in peering (both INEX members and non INEX members), our colleagues in other IXPs and those in community organisations who support the work of IXPs and peering.

Solas is the Irish language word for light and there is plenty of light in our worldwide community!
