We look forward to another exciting competition this coming Sunday as we wait to see the panels competing for the title of SACC Interclub Champions 2015. The competition will be held at Loreto Secondary School, Granges Road, Kilkenny.
Can Cork Camera Group retain the title and make is three in a row? Will long-standing title holders Mallow Camera Club reclaim the title once again? Do the host club Kilkenny Photographic Society have the winning panels this year having being so close in previous years? Will the trophy be moving to the South East with Wexford Camera Club & Waterford Camera Club in the mix? Or will it be one of the newer clubs?!
The trophy pictured on the right was donated by Enniscorthy Camera Club and is the trophy that the overall winning club receives. We have several new trophies this year as some of the older trophies had filled up, and we’ll be introducing these on the day too.
There are also trophies and certificates on offer at club level for each section and also gold medals for best image in each section individually!
Please note that there is a general meeting of the SACC scheduled for 10.15am. Please attend and welcome the new committee in their introductions, hear the plans for the coming year and get involved with your suggestions.
