It’s that time of year again as the excitement builds and clubs around the country are getting their panels together for the National Shield.
Venue: Pobal Scoil Iosolde, Palmerstown Dublin 20
Date: Sunday 18 th November 2018
Registration: 9 am sharp
Please carefully read the competition rules, especially rules relating to two images from LIPF holders being allowed on each panel and the number of images per photographer.
Note that Licentiate holders who have won national or international awards, or who have successfully gained multiple acceptances in international competitions, may not have images entered in the competition. If you are in any way unsure about this rule, please contact me. I'm pleased to note that the decision to admit a limited number of LIPF holders into the competition, which was in response to requests from several clubs, has been generally very well received across the country.
At registration, image titles must be provided on an A4 sheet, in list form numbered from 1-8, starting with the first image on the top left-hand corner of your panel. The sheet must NOT contain the name of the club or any photographer. This list will be available to the judges during the judging process and is intended to be an aid to the judging process. Again, please note what it says in the rules.Please also note the specifications for size of mounts and the images contained in them.
Note also that photograph details (photographer’s name, club and image title) must be fixed to the back lower-half of each mount. Do not fix the title to the upper half please, as this makes it visible from the opposite side of the display panel.
Sunday, 4th November, is the closing date for receipt of entries. The entry fee is €80.
The programme for the day will be announced closer to the date of the competition. I recommend you have a look at this link on the IPF website – http://irishphoto.ie/ipf-national-shield/

Best of luck, looking forward to seeing you on the day
