SACC Creative Photography Competition 2016 – NOW OPEN


The SACC Committee is delighted to announce that the 2016 SACC Creative Photography Competition will be held on Sunday, October 23rd at the Park Hotel, Dungarvan, Co Waterford.

The competition is open to members of all IPF affiliated clubs.

For those collecting Irish qualifiers for AFIAP applications, the top 35% of images in this competition qualify for AFIAP.

The Rules of the competition, which was formerly known as the SACC Creative Digital Competition, have been updated for 2016 (please read carefully). The competition will open for online entries in mid-October and the competition will be judged by Martin Spackman ARPS and Paul Reidy LIPF, AFIAP.

There are two sections: prints and projected images, each catering for intermediate and advanced photographers. To decide which category you qualify for (Intermediate or Advanced), please refer to the competition rules. You may enter four images in each section.

Entry fee is €8 for one section and €12 for two. The entry fee must be paid via the online registration system.

The definition to work to is:

Creative Photography means different things to different people. To some, it means manipulation of images using image editing software and to others, it means breaking the rules/conventions using creative techniques in-camera such as slow shutter speeds, panning, creative compositions etc. Photographic content should predominate. For the purposes of this competition, anything goes”.

The inclusion of stock images/clip art is not permitted. For example, if you wish to add a sunflower to your image, then you need to photograph a sunflower!”
