Upcoming Events


Kilkenny Photographic Society



From 19th March 2020 onward

Last Thursday we held our first virtual club meeting and 16 members logged in. For a first go it was very successful and enjoyable. Thanks to our chairman, Ned, who took on the new learning so that we could continue to communicate with each other and enjoy our photography.

We will continue to host weekly virtual meetings on Thursdays at the usual time of 8pm. To join the meetings you will need to download the ZOOM APP to your phone or computer. This may require you to set up an account (FREE account) to use the app. Once you have downloaded the app you will need a MEETING ID to join the meeting.

The MEETING ID for this coming Thursday night at 8:00pm is contained in the email which you have already received.
If you have any difficulties with this please contact Ned at 085 1745715.


We are also asking members to send presentations/slideshows not exceeding 10 mins to Ned. These will be shared with members at our virtual meetings. If you have any suitable material please email it to chairman@kilkennyphoto.net

The SACC is going ahead with the interclub competition as planned. This is a projected only competition and all activities including the judging will be done remotely. KPS is looking for your images for this competition. The latest date for clubs to upload images to this competition is Friday, 17th April so the KPS competition secretary will need images as soon as possible. Please see previous emails for image sizes etc. (Digital images for projection must be 3,000 pixels on the longest side @ 300 DPI, jpeg quality 10.)

If you have images please forward them to the competitionsecretary@kilkennyphoto.net

We are all vulnerable in these difficult times so we hope you and your family are all keeping well and minding yourselves. It is important that we try to continue living as normally as possible so we hope you will take the opportunity on Thursday nights to connect with your friends in KPS.
