A new exhibition opened in Magherafelt is a ‘celebration of the best of club photography’.
A total of 100 large monochrome and colour prints, along with a selection of projected digital work, form part of the Northern Ireland Photographic Association (NIPA) Annual Print Exhibition which is on display in The Bridewell, Magherafelt’s Visitor Information Centre.
All the material has been selected by a guest judge, Gabriel O’Shaughnessy FIPF FRPS, and photographers are represented from clubs right across Northern Ireland.
NIPA President, Vittorio Silvestri, said:
“Following this year’s Camera Jungle sponsored inter-club series of competitions, which culminated in our Top Print & Projected Image competition at Christian Brothers Past Pupils Camera Club, this exhibition once again shows the extremely high standard of photographic skills by the camera clubs across the country”.
“As an example, in late June NIPA picked up the top monochrome award for its excellent standard of photography in the prestigious Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) Inter-federation Championships held at Ashfield Girls School, Belfast with support by NIPA. This result is a first for NIPA in modern times and is hugely significant for the camera club fraternity throughout Northern Ireland.”
The exhibition is now on at The Bridewell, Magherafelt and will run until 12th November 2016. For more information about the exhibition visit www.niphoto.co.uk/nipa-2016-exhibition or call The Bridewell Visitor Information Centre on 028 7963 1510.
