This year there will be prizes as well as medals awarded thanks to the sponsorship of the EPA. Internationally recognised landscape photographer David Noton will once again take on the task of judging the competition. It’s time to charge the batteries! #holdfirm

The competition is sponsored by the EPA in honour of their esteemed colleague John Doheny.  who was a founding member of the SACC.    John had a long and distinguished career in the EPA and his love of photography was clear to see. Many EPA publications contain photographs that John took over the years and his photographic work is on display in the Cork Office as well as being reproduced as far and wide as the European Environment Agency and the  European Commission’s Joint Research Centre.


 John was a founder member of Mallow Camera Club and a previous Secretary, Chair and Webmaster of the SACC.  John served the SACC in various roles and was instrumental in keeping the organisation alive and growing over the years. The launch on 1st June 2021 coincides with the first anniversary of John’s untimely death.


Full details and rules will be published next week.

Premiering this evening at 7 pm the Interclub Results Video is the culmination of a lot of hard work. Thanks to The committee Ger, Tadhg & Henry for the support in all the work promoting the SACC. Thanks to Rory O’Connor IPF Treasurer, who checked the scores. Thanks to this years judges Paul Stanley, Helen Hanafin and Ross Mckelvey and especially Paul for the gruelling interview video!! I know what it’s like!! Special thanks to all the clubs who entered. In a very tough year for clubs, it was brilliant to get the same number of entries as last year. I hope as things open up we get a better year both for the competition and in general for club photography.
