Club Announcement – OffShoot at the IPF National Shield 2016
On 12th November 2016 twenty five Irish clubs met in Cork for the IPF National Shield 2016. It was a great competition with OffShoot Photography Society gaining a very credible 3rd Place with Dundalk Photographic Society in 1st and Palmerstown Camera Club in 2nd.

OffShoot gained a magnificent 1st Place for our Monochrome panel with two of the images winning individual awards. Janet Wippell got a Gold Medal for her image ‘Pylons’ and George Balmer got a HM for his image ‘Montalcino Stormy Morning’. Congratulation to both for their great images.
On behalf of the club we would like to express thanks to all of the members who sent in images and particular thanks to the members of the selection team (Ken Dobson, Matt O’Brien, Wendy Hannan, Janet Wippell, Richard Byrne, Olive Gaughan and John Coveney) whose role was to condense the images into the final panels, Steve Crozier for the prints and John Coveney for taking the images down to Cork for showing at the Shield.
