We are delighted to be sponsoring the I.P.F. National Shield 2020
. Once again we are delighted to be sponsoring the Irish Photographic Federation's, National Shield event. This year the event is a digital only event to be held via Zoom, and we will miss the interaction with camera clubs, their members and the many friends we have made through our sponsorship throughout previous years. Open to all I.P.F. camera clubs throughout Ireland, this years event has over 28 clubs competing. Check out the IPF's website here
Now taking bank transfer payments for online orders. We are delighted to be able to take payments for web orders on our website at the checkout stage by bank transfer. Simply go through the order as usual and select bank transfer as the payment option. An email will then give instructions for the payment. This is particularly useful when the daily spend on some credit and debit cards is less than the purchase price of these items or you have a bank account but do not like using cards online. We bank with AIB bank so payments from AIB accounts are likely to be same day transactions.
Missing trade shows, discussions and talks? In a series of new Zoom events we are hoping to bring back a little bit of what we are missing. Join us in the second of our free and short Zoom events starting with a talk and interview with Holger Mischke from Germany on the 26th of August at 11:00am. Just send us an email to email@example.com to register. Check out Holger's website here: www.holgermischke.com

This competition is open to all IPF Affiliated Camera Clubs in Ireland and we expect to have around about 30 clubs competing. For further information please click here.
It's not often that I ask for support, but today I ask your help to generate a little piece of history!
Back in 2000, the Malahide Camera Club produced a book (Malahide at the Millennium) and almost 20 years on they hope to do the same. Using Kickstarter, they are asking that people might support their project and as they are a not for profit organisation, they have nominated 3 charities where all the profit will go. The St. Francis Hospice; The Laura Brennan Charitable Trust and The Ross Nugent Foundation. This book, Malahide People and Places will have great photographs capturing events throughout the year and like their previous book will hopefully be sought after for many years to come.
