This year the IPF is providing a new set of display stands for the competition. These new display stands will present the images at a slight angle outwards to the viewer and all mounts will be bottom aligned as shown in the picture below. The mounted images will sit freely into trays and therefore there will no requirement to have any velcro or other sticky material to retain the mount to the stand.
The rules and regulations of the IPF Club Championship have some minor changes. Those changes are to reflect the new the display stands, for most entrants the changes will mean that they no longer should put any velcro or other sticky material on the back of the mount as the mount will sit freely in the stand. It also removes the previous restriction of 8×4 boards. The new display stands are 2500mm long. Full rules and regulations are available on our website at http://irishphoto.ie/ipf-national-club-championships/
