I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has added photographs to the Competition Folder, and thanks to those who helped and gave advice on the panel thats going forward to tomorrows SACC Interclub Competition at  http://www.lifetimelab.ie Cork

It's not an easy process to pick a panel of images when you have a small number of images to work with. To pick ten images for a panel we should ideally have 50-70 images to work with. For our next competition later in the year we will need Colour and B&W panels so please keep adding you favourite photos to the folder.

Best of luck to all members that have photos in tomorrows panel 

Regards

David.

We had a great evening with judge Danny McCaughan for the final round of our Photographer of the Year competition. From the five finalists he picked Brian Matthews as the winner – congratulations, Brian. The other four were Jenny McCullough, Shirley Kelly, Joe Rattigan and David Fitzgerald. In an interview afterwards the judge said “All were fantastic. It was difficult to pick a winner”. Brian now appears on our Honours Roll page.

Last night "Travel" was drawn as the topic for Round 3. This led to some discussion as to what would constitute a travel photograph, so I decided to do a bit of browsing …

Wikipedia quotes the Photographic Society of America: "a travel photo is an image that expresses the feeling of a time and place, portrays a land, its people, or a culture in its natural state, and has no geographical limitations". National Geographic has a page of travel photography tips, which may help but they do assume you have travelled before making your images, whereas for the PSA's definition you don't actually need to go abroad, nor even to Belfast – you could take pictures in Dublin Street that express the feeling of time and place. I'll pass the PSA definition on to the judge.

You could spend many hours on the internet looking at travel photographs, but if you have only time for a few, take a look at these 10 in the Guardian Newspaper's October Travel competition, with a sub-theme "Faces".
