Palmerstown Camera Club Expanding Internationally

Palmerstown CC Kevin Naughton Picking Flowers

On the 12th of May Palmerstown Camera Club is relishing the new challenge against the highly-esteemed Hibiscus Photographic Society of South Africa. Joe Houghton who is a member of both clubs has arranged the competition. There will be 50 images from each club with a maximum of two photographs from any one member.  The competition is open to all members in categories from Novice to Advanced. Each photograph will be adjudicated on zoom by a neutral judge in England. This is an ideal opportunity for visitors to see how a very successful photographic club in Ireland fares against a top club in South Africa and to learn from it.  

Palmerstown Camera Club invites all adults to our Zoom meetings on Wednesday nights. You can attend a couple of meetings for free to see how you can benefit. They are also starting training sessions for novices. On the 12th of May the zoom meeting will start at 6.45pm (not 8.00pm).  Contact for the zoom link and for further information or visit See you on Wednesday nights!
