Annual Exhibition Entries Now Open


*** NIPA Annual Exhibition *** The NIPA Annual Exhibition is the culmination of our photography year. The overall intention of the Exhibition is to provide an opportunity to show everyone a selection of images that best represents our club photography. Thanks to the work of Alastair Jack and Martin Spackman, after the initial display in the Artcetera Gallery, the Exhibition travels throughout the year to many venues in NI. When the judges pick the images for the Exhibition, they are always given instructions to select images which best represents NIPA and cover all photographic genres - landscapes, portraits, nature, sport, street, etc. Only after they have made a selection do they then look at the selected images and pick the winners, etc. We would really like to have a large amount of our clubs in the represented in the Exhibition, but that is only possible if members from every club submits images. Unfortunately, in past years that has not been the case, with only approximately 10 of our clubs being represented in the Exhibition. We know from the results of this year's Top Print and PDI Competition, that there are worthy images available from ALL our clubs, and we would like to urge you to promote entry to the exhibition among your members. We know that it costs slightly more to print and mount your images for the exhibition, but when you see it printed and mounted at 40cm x 50cm , you see the difference. The Competition Rules are available on this NIPA website, but here's a quick summary: 1. There are sections for Monochrome prints, Colour prints and PDIs. Entrants may submit up to 4 images in each section. The subject is Open. Prints or PDIs must not have been accepted in a previous NIPA Annual Exhibition. 2. Prints may be any size up to 50 x 40cm and must be mounted. Mounts may be of any colour but must measure 50 x 40cm. The back of the mount must show: -The author's name and address -The name of the author's club -The title of the print 3. The entry fee is £1.00 for each Print or PDI entered - paid in cash 4. The closing date for entries is 31st May. 5. Between now and 31st May prints can be delivered to Chelle McGaughey (in the evening) or Anne Given (after 11am). 6. An online entry form for submission of exhibition PDIs and digital versions of prints will be available shortly. 7.
