The IPF National Shield Club competition 2013 will be held on Saturday, 9th of November and will be hosted by Malahide Camera Club and held in Malahide Community School.

The National Shield is an inter-club competition for all members of camera clubs who are deemed to be intermediate photographers. The formal definition of an intermediate photographer is posted below.

Eligible KPS members are asked to submit images for inclusion in the Society’s entry in this competition. We’ll be putting together 2 panels of 8 images – one in colour and one in monochrome. The submission date for members has been extended, so please submit your images on CD, thumb drive or to the designated Dropbox before Oct 24th.

Please submit your images in either .TIFF or .PSD file types as this facilitates the subsequent printing process.

The KPS selection committee are:

  • John Cuddihy (President IPF)
  • Seamus Costelloe (FIPF)
  • Ronan Doyle (LIPF)
  • Diarmuid O’Riordan (ARPS)
