AWPF Assessments, 6th November 2016

A huge thank you goes out to all of this year’s judges Nick Jenkins (Chairman), Margaret Collis, Jenny Hibbert, David Lingham and Brian Coleman who were all greatly impressed by the fantastic standard of work presented for assessment this year.

Once again the work presented at Talbot Green Community Centre was amazing, which resulted in an 80% pass rate. There were 26 entries, 25 in prints and 1 DPI which resulted in 21 AWPF awards being achieved, 20 for print panels and 1 for DPI.

Many congratulations to the successful candidates, who were:

Howard Evans – Velindre & Trostre CC

The WPF would strongly urge those who weren’t successful this year to submit entries again next year as they missed by a very small margin, all had feedback from the judges as to improvements that they can make to move their work forward in readiness for 2017.

In addition it was pleasing to see so many people attending who had not entered this year’s event but were keenly interested in seeing what it was all about and getting an idea of the standard needed.

I would once again like to thank everyone who helped to make the day such a great success.

Information on future WPF events relating to distinctions will be released early in 2017.

Many congratulations to all participants and can I take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very happy new year.
