At the recent Southern Association of Camera Clubs Print and Projected Image Competition, which was held in the Horse & Jockey Hotel, Fermoy Camera Club Member Suzanne Merrigan won a Gold Medal in the Intermediate Section for her Still Life photograph. (Suzanne becomes the third photographer from FCC to take a top Intermediate Medal in this competition in the last three years). In the advanced section of the competition FCC’s Bill Power won a Silver Medal as well as an Honourable Mention with two of his photos.
This competition is a qualifying round for the Irish Photographic Federation’s, the national umbrella organisation for Irish camera clubs, National Finals to be held in February next year. All the FCC members who entered the competition had Images qualify for the National Finals.
The other news from FCC was their Christmas Party which was held at the weekend. This was a great event where FCC members left their cameras at home and instead kitted themselves out in their best Christmas gear and dancing shoes for a very enjoyable night of chat, dancing, storytelling and even a bit of singing.
Sunday will see the club travel to Cork to get those last minute Photographs of the Glow Festival.
Another fab day out with FCC along the Copper Coast in Co.Waterford.The Copper Coast drive embraces the panoramic seascapes, cliffs, bays and coves between Dungarvan and the major seaside resort of Tramore as well as the more intimate Seaside resorts Clonea and Bunmahonr.
