All camera clubs have members that are, either new to photography, or new to the complicated world of digital photography. Some camera clubs use the terms, 'beginners, or foundation" to separate them from the well established or, often called 'advanced members'. 


NIPA offers the 'Novice Competition' to allow all club members, new to photography, to compete in a competition that is only open to them. 


  • The competition is organised by NIPA for individual members of its member clubs.

  • There are three sections: Monochrome Prints, Colour Prints and Projected Digital Images.

  • The competition is open to all club members who meet the definition of 'Novice' following the adjudication of Round 4 of the Inter-club Competition.

  • Entries for the competition are selected by members of NIPA clubs from their own work.
