*** National Shield Digital 2020 results ***
Top 4 and Most improved club.

The National Shield Competition results were announced today by the IPF. The competition is mainly open to intermediate photographers. This competition was competed by 29 clubs from all over Ireland and adjudicated by 3 international judges from Australia, Indonesia and the UK. What was particularly evident and acknowledged by all the judges was the very high standard of the photography on display. Large numbers of the photographs were deemed strong enough to compete and win at International advanced photography salons.
This year’s competition which is normally a print event, was organised on a digital platform because of the Covid 19 pandemic and up to 300 people attended the well organised event on Zoom on Sunday 22nd November.
Two panels of 8 photographs, one in colour and one in Mono were judged. The Athlone Photography Club, previous winners of the event were acknowledged as the most improved club over the last year and finished in 4th place overall. The club finished 6th in each colour and mono section and this is an outstanding result considering the limited number of photographers eligible to enter the competition. The overall competition was won by Blarney Photography Club in Co Cork, 2nd was Catchlight from Belfast and 3rd was Offshoot Camera Club in Dublin.
Congratulations to all the photographers who entered and took part in this years competition. See Panels attached.

Hi Everyone 📷
Episode VII- Conceptual Photography - Marcel Van Balken
Just a reminder that our next APC meeting is on Wednesday 18th of November commencing at 8pm sharp and excitingly this week the club will be welcoming speaker on the night Marcel Van Balken from the Netherlands.

Marcel van Balken is a self-taught photographer from the Netherlands for about 40 years. As a photographer he is interested in specific themes and conceptual photography. He believes in working thematically with an absolute preference for surrealistic and creative photography.

Marcel moves as a photographer ideally in the field of surrealism and magic realism. He prefers to create photographic images inspired by everyday reality combined with his own imagination. He strives to carefully compose photographic compositions of realistic looking scenes in unreal and sometimes magical spheres.
