The Southern Association of Camera Clubs (SACC) is the region of the Irish photographic Federation (IPF) covering the south of the country from Arklow to Clare.
The SACC has a history which precedes the formation of the IPF of which it is now a regional component. Annually, it arranges an interclub competition and a nationwide creative digital competition. It is also responsible for holding the regional rounds of IPF national competitions. All SACC competitions are run under IPF rules.
In addition to running both its own competitions and regional qualifying rounds of IPF national competitions, the SACC is responsible for providing a means of communication between clubs in the south of the country.
The SACC also hosts guest lecturers from overseas which provides the opportunity for multiple clubs to attend a talk by high quality photographers that clubs themselves might otherwise not have the budget or facilities to host.
