The first of the five NIPA rounds in the inter-club competition.
Between September and March NIPA organises a series of five interclub competitions. Four mono prints, four colour prints and four Projected Digital image entries are invited from all member clubs/societies. Two of the rounds have a theme or a topic and the remaining three rounds are open. A panel of three judges score the images and the top images are given a "Star". All images are then displayed at the NIPA Display and Adjudication evenings.
This first round is an 'open' round - which basically means what it says on the tin - anything goes! There is no theme and no specific genre. This is when BPIC selects the images to go forward to represent the club at the inter-club competition.
Judging takes place on the night and entries from club members will be displayed in 'Novice' and 'Advanced' categories, with colour prints, mono prints, and a PDI (Projected Digital Image) section.
This round will be judged by our own William (Billy) Leahey.
