The SACC will run a special competition and is introducing the inaugural ‘John Doheny Trophy’. John made a huge contribution to club photography and especially the SACC and this committee felt this an appropriate way to mark this contribution. This competition is for all Club members of SACC affiliated Clubs, as a Digital competition. The idea is to capture the striking beauty and drama of the Irish Landscape, Rural, Coastal and of course Urban Landscapes taken during this time of pandemic uncertainty. Discovering and rediscovering local and nearby places of beauty and or interest as well as urban landscapes transformed by the Lockdown has led to a wealth of amazing images. The competition shall consist of two sections (Colour and Monochrome), under the theme of “Irish Lockdown Landscapes”and is for FIAP defined ‘Traditional photographs’. Entries will be confined to landscape images captured between 15th March 2020 and 30th September 2020 ( Closing Date ) from anywhere on the island of Ireland and will be judged across Advanced and Non-Advanced Grades. Entrants at both levels will compete and sets of medals will be sent to winners and all are eligible for the overall prize, the winner will be awarded “The John Doheny Perpetual Trophy.” Downloadable rules and entry forms will be available from July 13th. Up to 6 images will be allowed and there will be a single €10 entry fee. If you don’t have Irish Lockdown Images already in your portfolio start shooting there is over 12 weeks before the closing date!!
