AIPC (Australian Interstate Photographic Competition) 2016

APSCON was held in Adelaide this year and by all reports was a huge success.

Here are just some of the activities/workshops that were available.

The Australian Interstate Photographic Competition (AIPC) is held each year.

I am very pleased to advise that South Australia came 3rd out of the 5 states which entered, and NSW took out the honours – the Alan Moran Trophy.

I am even more pleased to advise that there were several Port Adelaide Camera Club Members mentioned in this year's catalogue.

Congratulations to Graeme Stokes, Jason Glover, Rebecca Turle and Bec Lundberg on representing South Australia in this competition.

You can find the 2016 AIPC Catalogue HERE and for those that are interested, the 2015 AIPC Catalogue is HERE  (PACC members have been highlighted in GREEN)

updated:  a slideshow of images can be found HERE  (140 MB, approx 11 minutes)

There was a level of immense pride, tinged with a bit of sadness, when I read this article in October's Australian Photography.

Thank you for your contribution to our club Dianne Davies, the PACC is all the more richer for your membership over the last 10 years.
