The Open Section for NIPA Club members had eleven entries and Antrim Camera Club was represented by our AV stalwart James Hamill with a sequence entitled "Mountains Of The Mind". There were three sequences placed, a judges' special award and one commendation.
The All Ireland section had eighteen entries from club members North and South of the Border. There were three sequences placed, and four commendations in this section.
The final competition was made between the top NIPA Sequence and the top placed IPF sequence.
An award was made for the sequence selected by the audience.
I am pleased to report that the Top AV sequence, the NIPA/IPF inter Federation contest and the audience Best overall were won by James Hamill.
A CLEAN SWEEP!
Well done James
