The ICPA is a group of 17 local clubs of varying sizes who organise two main competitions throughout the year, the ICPA Knock-Out and the ICPA Inter-Clubs Competition.  Both are for club entries rather than individuals, the difference being in the way they are scored.  For these competitions Darwen encourage entries from all our members.

ICPA Inter-Clubs Competition

There are three categories, Digitally Projected Images, Colour Prints and Mono Prints.  Entries consist of ten images per category, which must be from at least 4 different photographers.  All images are scored out of 20, but the club's overall score for the category is based on the best four scores from different workers.
