• Study the rules and get your panels organised

Please read Interclub Rules 2014 (no change since last year) and work with your club to assemble your panels!

• Pack double-sided sticky velcro

Lots of it! You’ll need double-sided sticky velcro to attach your prints to the panel boards.

• Watch out for mount size

Maximum mount size is 20 x 16 inches. The dimensions of the panel boards are 8 x 4 feet (96 x 48 inches). Please note that if you are using the maximum size mount, and all mounts on any row are landscape oriented, they are not going to fit on the panel boards. You need to either adjust the layout of your panel, or use slightly smaller mounts.

• Hang panels

Panels must be hung between 9am-10.30am on Sunday 23rd March in Skyline Suite at Hotel Kilkenny. Full schedule coming shortly.

With the support of many of the top photographers in our region, we are delighted to announce that we are holding a Photography Draw on Sunday, March 23rd 2014 at the SACC Interclub Competition (details of venue etc for that competition will be posted in coming days).

The top prize is an ‘Images of Light‘ workshop very generously donated by John Hooton. John is an internationally acclaimed landscape photographer and the winner of this prize will be the envy of all their photographer friends!

Those lucky enough to claim one of the second place prizes will also be the envy of their peers as they go home with one of five gorgeous framed prints donated by fellows of the region; Iñaki Hernandez, Michael O’Sullivan, Morgan O’Neill, Niamh Whitty & Seamus Costello.

We’ll also have other smaller prizes on the day 🙂
