Presenters – CONTACT LIST

Amendments, deletions or additions to all presenters and judges information should be notified to the Judges & Presenters Secretary, Ed Cloutman EFIAP. Tel: 01446 751686  judgepresent@thewpf.co.uk

Standard Invitation Form for Presenters – please use this form which you will find here (it will appear as a link at the bottom of your screen).

Presenters Assessment Forms - Please note that as I nearly always get 5 stars for presenters, I no longer find it necessary to continue the star rating system for PRESENTERS.  It is still very important for clubs to continue with the feedback forms for JUDGES.  If you would like to comment or have high praise for a particular presentation, please email me above and I can put them in the next Newsflash. 

Presenters:  If you have any high praise or complaints about the way you have been treated by any club, or have any useful suggestions on how clubs could make your evening with them more pleasurable, please email me at the WPF at the address above..

Key to format of lectures:
P             Print lecture    
S             Slide lecture
S+           Slides larger than 35mm
D             Demonstration
AV           Audio Visual or Slide/Sound
Di            Digital/Computer/Projection
V             Video

All Presenters are subject to Welsh Photographic Federation Annual Renewal.
The WPF reserves the right to remove Presenters from the list

Please Note!  Titles should be SHORT and a maximum of TWELVE.  These limits are imposed by the PAGB in their handbook which makes my life much easier.  They allow six lines, two titles per line, so long titles will mean you lose a title which means I will knock off the last, etc.!

LIST OF WPF APPROVED PRESENTERS

It is courteous for clubs to introduce the presenter properly, with their distinctions.
