** Catchlight Member wins NIPA Novice Competition **

22nd January 2015
Catchlight Member Stephen Bassett has won the NIPA Novice Competition in Colour prints! His winning image was "Ella's eyes" and he also managed 2nd place with "Naked Pose." Congratulations Stephen! The competition was held at Bangor CC and the 3 judges were Stephen McWilliams ARPS, Trevor Craig and Anne Given CPAGB LRPS. This is a great start to the Year for Stephen, who recently achieved the LIPF and as a consequence would have been in the Advanced Section next Season regardless.
Brian McClure got 2nd place in mono prints with "waiting."
Joe Vize was Highly Commended in PDI.
Well done all, and thank you to our Novice members who submitted a large entry to the competition.
