NERIAC hosted the National IAC Festival in Newcastle, the Chairman's Challenge was not held
This Competition started as a very informal affair at the NERIAC Autumn Festival. In the early days of video Savilles of York loaned us a bulky camera and Clubs could borrow it for 15 minutes to produce an "instant" edited in camera masterpiece. This was judged by the audience later the same weekend. As the years passed Clubs became more sophisticated and arrived complete with scripts and props. The next development was for the Chairman to set a theme which was announced a year in advance but filming still took place during the Scarborough weekend itself. By now Clubs had their own video equipment and were even editing through Saturday night to complete their work. Finally it was decided that Clubs would be allowed to make their video during the year, although there were some gluttons for punishment, usually from Huddersfield, who still like the added challenge of shooting and editing in one day. This now proves to be a very enjoyable Inter-Club Challenge, which always produces an entertaining programme. Since 2001 all the entries have been copied onto a tape which is available for Clubs to borrow. It makes a good Club night and hopefully inspires new Clubs to have a go next year.
