Canon_WEB_logoCongratulations to all the medallists and award winners at SACC Regional Round of IPF National Print & Projected Image Competition which took place on Sunday November 3rd at The Horse & Jockey Hotel, Co.Tipperary. The IPF Print & Projected Image Competition 2013/2014 is sponsored by Canon.

Special congratulations to Seamus Costelloe from Kilkenny Photographic Society who won the overall award for best image and was awarded the Seamus Scullane Memorial Trophy.

Thank you to the SACC Committee (Bill Power, John Doheny, John Hogan, Neily Curtin & Niamh Whitty) who organised the event and to Eileen Sykes and Viv & Jer Buckley who all worked very hard with the committee on the day.  Thanks also to the judges; Judy Boyle, Garbiel O’Shaughnessy & Denis Whelehan who did a sterling job on a very busy day.  Thanks also to Kilkenny Photographic Society for the use of their lightbox. Last but not least, our thanks to the team at Picturk & to IPF PPI Co-ordinator Michael O’Sullivan for all their time & input leading up to this competition.

We’d love to post up all the winning images, but as the competition is ongoing, it wouldn’t be appropriate to identify images and photographers until judging of finals is complete. Images from awards ceremony are available though in the SACC PPI 2013 Gallery.
