LCC thinks it may have set a new club record for entries to the NIPA Inter-Club Competition on Tuesday with 105 images submitted to the First Round (Open) for the 2017/18 season. We had 46 prints submitted for the Colour section; 34 prints for the Mono section and 25 PDI submissions. A special mention is due for Caroline Smyth who on entering her first round at the club achieved two of the top four positions for colour prints, one for the mono print section and the top three positions for PDI’s!
The results in full are as follows…
Colour round:- 1st place - Joe McKay 2nd place - Caroline Smyth 3rd place - Becca McIlroy 4th place - Caroline Smyth
Mono round:- 1st place - Sean Maguire 2nd place - Vincent Taggart 3rd place - Mark Gwynne 4th place - Caroline Smyth
PDI round:- 1st place - Caroline Smyth 2nd place - Caroline Smyth 3rd place - Caroline Smyth 4th place - Trevor Hartnett
It should also be added that not only did we get what we think is a record number of entries, but the overall standard was exceptionally high. NIPA’s Darren Brown certainly had his work cut out picking the best of this bunch!
“It was a fantastic set of images submitted tonight by all the members,” said Club Secretary Natalie Sloan, “and it was great to see how far the members from last year have progressed in their work. Well done to all!"
