SACC Nature Competition 2013 – Results

On Sunday, January 27th, the SACC held the regional qualifying round of the IPF National Nature Competition at The Newpark Hotel in Kilkenny in association with Kilkenny Photographic Society

Congratulations to all our winners on the day and to everyone who took part. Best of luck to everyone whose images qualified for national finals next year.

Thank you to our judges; Mark Sedgwick FIPF EFIAP and Des Connors FIPF who did an outstanding job not only scoring the images but also providing ongoing commentary and invaluable feedback to the audience on many of the images they were judging.

The competition was powered by Picturk and its online system once again proved itself on Sunday. Thanks to Paul Geraghty from Picturk who was with us for the day to ensure smooth running of the competition.

Thanks are due to the hotel for providing outstanding facilities and to Kilkenny Photographic Society who hosted the events and supplied a great team of volunteers for the event.

Huge thanks also to the SACC committee, without whom this event would not have taken place.  We look forward to our next event – The SACC Interclub Competition which takes place on March 24th and we’ll be posting details about it over the next few weeks.
