This year's Inter-Regional Wildlife Competition, the 5th running of this perpetual competition was hosted by the IPF.

 

We had a fantastic entry from both the IPF and NIPA, with a total of 368 images across the two sections, Wildlife and Macro.

 

These were independently judged by Gordon Rae MPAGB, ARPS and Rod Wheelans MPAGB, FRPS, MFIAP, FIPF, HonPAGB, HonSPF

On Saturday 11th Feb results and feedback were given at the Botanic House in Dublin, a great day enjoyed by all.

Both judges provided excellent feedback on all of  the images, many thanks, Gordon and Rod.

Congratulations to everyone who entered and to those who had placed images.

Congratulations to the IPF who just pipped us by 29 points to take the overall honour of the top Federation.

While NIPA may have lost out on the overall honours, we did win the gold and bronze medal in each section. Well done guys.

Full results are available below, along with all the NIPA images.

Looking forward to next year.
