The SACC Interclub Comeptition 2016 will be held on Sunday March 13th at Lifetime Lab, Lee Road, Cork City.
Rules are unchanged since last year and may be viewed on this link. In summary, panels are presented as colour print, monochrome print and projected image. A club may enter one, two or all three panels with ten images per panel. No photographer may be represented more then twice on any given panel. Prints MUST fit on the panel boards.
We would love to see ALL clubs in the region take this chance to compete! Don’t forget that a major part of this event is the exhibition after judging is concluded and representing your club on a panel is a very proud moment for every photographer.
The entry fee to this competition has increased by €10 across the three options. Unfortunately, this is now necessary due to both rising costs and the evolution of the competition into the great event it now is which requires bigger venues to accommodate ever growing crowds.
Fees for the 2016 competition are:
€30 for one panel
€40 for two panels
€50 for all three panels
What does my club need to do to enter?

Step 3 – Prepare
• 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
We’ll be announcing schedule for the day shortly.
