PSA Success For Angela

Angela Bonner a member of Hay on Wye Camera club has just achieved her first Recognition of Photographic Achievement from the Photographic Society of America, gaining first stars in both colour and monochrome divisions. Well done Angela.

I am aware that a number of other WPF members are embarking on this route to recognition as well as a number in North Wales. It is challenging to pitch your work into international competitions and rewarding when you achieve success. Anyone interested in recieving further guidance should contact me and I will be pleased to assist.

WPF Celtic Challenge Entries

Hi Folks,

Our list of entries can be seen here.

I believe we have a strong entry this year, thanks to the many photographers that sent in pictures for us to consider – it made the selector’s choices very difficult with much toing and froing before the final 30 were finalised. We had so many choices that it was fair to choose only one per photographer in each of the sections.

In order to load these up to the NIPA Entry System I need to have PDIs of the prints, Cliff is checking and hoping to find those in recent Salon and WISP entries but to make absolutely sure could I request anyone who know each of the photographers to ask them to Email me their copy PDIs.

Martin Nagle has volunteered to take our entry over to Ireland his year – for which we are truly grateful – and once loaded I will arrange to pass the work over to him.
