Congratulations to Colin Price

Congratulations to Colin Price of New Quay CC on achieving the QPSA award for photographic achievment from the Photographic Society of America. This was gained with a mixture of colour and mono acceptances in PSA recognised salons. QPSA is followed by PPSA which is now his next target. Well done Colin.

I hope that other international exhibitors in Wales might consider emulating Colin’s success.

A Message From Margaret Salisbury

We’ve received some information from our favourite ‘dragon’, Margaret Salisbury. She’s asked us to pass it on to all Club Secretaries and Programme Secretaries. Margaret says:-

It’s time for a change so I’m putting out a new talk in the new year to be called The Dragon’s Journey which I will hope to give to clubs from March onward but mainly of course the 2019-2020 season. I’m also cutting down so although available will be spreading out my lectures and taking on a limited number.

You can read full details here.

Want to know about the PSA?

Ian Ledgard writes in his new position as Photographic Society of America Membership Director for Wales.

I see from the catalogues from many Salons that there are a good number of Welsh entrants who are achieving success with both acceptances and awards and yet only a tiny handful have sought to seek recognition of their achievements by PSA.

PSA offers Recognition of Photographic Achievement for individuals who gain acceptances in PSA recognised exhibitions. The route is through a Stars and Galaxies system leading to QPSA, PPSA, EPSA, GMPSA and even higher awards.

It would be great to see more Welsh based photographers seeking these awards and I am very happy to provide further information and support.
