SACC Interclub 2018 – Now Open for Entries

The SACC Interclub Competition 2018 will be held on Sunday April 8th at Scoil Mhuire Gan Smál, 1 Old Blarney Road, Shean Lower, Blarney, Cork.

Rules are unchanged since last year and may be viewed on this link. There will be three distinct sections, colour print, monochrome print and projected image sections. Each club may enter a panel of ten images in each section.  A club may enter one, two or three sections. No photographer may be represented more than twice on any particular panel. 

We would love to see ALL clubs in the region taking part in the competition! 

Don’t forget that a major part of this event is the public exhibition, after judging has concluded, and representing your club on a panel is a very proud moment for every photographer.

The entry fee to this competition has remained unchanged from last year.  The fees are:

€30 for one panel
€40 for two panels
