Request from the WPF Judges Secretary

For anyone thinking about becoming a WPF judge and would like to know more about judging, could you please contact me (,  so that I can arrange an informal meeting.  This usually takes the form of a ‘mock’ judging session where you are given a set of prints to critique, and Jan and I go through them with you and guide you through the main points.  It is very informal, consisting of four or five applicants, and takes place at Rose Cottage.
