Success at the IPF Distinction Sitting at Thurles on 24/11/2018

Eileen Upton LIPF, Kevin Day AIPF, and Noelle Lowney LIPF

There was a strong showing from East Cork Camera Group at last Saturday's Irish Photographic Federation Distinction Sitting in Thurles, Co. Tipperary with six members seeking Distinctions.

Kevin Day, Dave Harris, Fidelma Read, and John Tait were seeking Associateships while Noelle Lowney and Eileen Upton were seeking Licentiateships.  With a capacity entry, judging began at 10 am accompanied by the expected apprehension and expectation of those being assessed.

Kevin, Eileen, and Noelle were all successful while Dave, Fidelma, and John narrowly missed out but lived to fight another day. Well done to all.
