Friday 6th April saw the 2018 NIPA Novice Competition held at The Fountain Centre in Bangor. Thank you to all our members who supported the competition and submitted entries, both in projected and print format. We’re delighted to report that, for the third year in a row, CPA members had winning images.
In the Mono Print section, Michael Mulholland won with Dancing on Ice and also had two Highly Commended images with Focussed and Every Step.
In the Colour Print section, Michael Mulholland made it two for two, winning with The Wave and also taking second place with Street Artist. Pauline McAleese was Commended for Howdie.
In the PDI section, Andrew Cooke took second place with The Longing, and Pauline had her second Commended image with Sugar Cube Quarry.
The overall top image on the night went to the winning PDI, Sleeping on Dad by Joanne Diffin from Focus Photography Club.
Michael is the third CPA novice to make the move up to advanced worker this season, following the success of both Steve Haydon and William Allen. Congratulations, everyone.
