SACC Creative Photography Competition 2015 – Now Open


creative 2015The SACC Committee is delighted to announce that the 2015 SACC Creative Photography Competition will be held on Saturday 31st October at the Seven Oaks Hotel, Carlow.

The competition is open to members of all clubs affiliated to the IPF.

For those collecting Irish qualifiers for AFIAP applications, the top 35% of images in this competition qualify from this year onwards.

The rules of the competition, which was formally known as the SACC Creative Digital Competition, have been revised and updated and the competition will open for online entries at the start of October. Please refer to Rules for full details. The competition will be judged by Ray Spence FRPS and Brid Coakley AIPF ARPS.

There are two sections; prints and projected images, each catering for intermediate and advanced photographers. Entry fee is €8 for one section and €12 for two.  The definition to work to is:

“Creative Photography means different things to different people. To some, it means manipulation of images using image editing software and to others, it means breaking the rules/conventions using creative techniques in-camera such as slow shutter speeds, panning, creative compositions etc. Photographic content should predominate. For the purposes of this competition, anything goes.

The inclusion of stock images/clip art is not permitted. For example, if you wish to add a sunflower to your image, then you need to photograph a sunflower!”
