The IPF is requesting photographers to submit images for consideration to represent Ireland in the forthcoming Celtic Challenge being held in Scotland. The Biennial Selection Committee will be choosing a total of thirty images for the competition, but images may also be considered for future selection to represent Ireland in other competitions. Please forward this email to your club members and encourage them to submit images.
ur next weekly meeting will be held on Thursday, 21st September. The theme for this night is “Camera Gear Night”. We will have different groups based on your brand of camera and hopefully through sharing knowledge we can answer some of your questions or clarify some issue for you. MAKE SURE YOU BRING YOUR CAMERA WITH YOU. Also on this night members will have the opportunity to show their images and have them critiqued if they wish. If you have images you wish to show the members please bring them along on an USB key.
DON’T FORGET THAT 24th SEPTEMBER IS THE CLOSING DATE FOR OUR FIRST MONTHLY COMPETITION. It’s an OPEN theme and is a projected competition. You can also bring your entries on an USB key with you to the meeting of 21st September.

In early November 2017, MacDonagh Junction will launch the Kilkenny Famine experience, a free self-guided audio-visual tour that will describe the human story of the Kilkenny famine inmates around the buildings of the former famine Workhouse (now Workhouse Square, MacDonagh Junction). As part of this project we hope to collect 975 fingerprint images from local groups and schools to represent and connect the people of present day Kilkenny to the crypt that houses the human remains at the Famine Memorial Garden at MacDonagh Junction. T
The participants will be also be invited to register their participation in our record book.
If you would like to take part in this project please call to the customer service desk or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We are holding a launch event in November and will be launching the tour as well as unveiling the fingerprint etchings and a beautiful bronze sculpture at the crypt.
