Early 2021 WPF Competitions

With the current and ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and with no clear idea of how quickly the world may change next year we have to address our competitions over the next 3 or 4 months. Below you will find our thoughts regarding these. We would like to have your consideration regarding whether you will take part in the replacement events that we are proposing below.

  1. Memorial Trophies Day – This in our calendar is scheduled to take place on the 17th January 2021 with your entries needing to be with us on the 10th January 2021. Because this is an attended event and involves 3 competitions, 4 PDIs, 4 Colour Prints and 4 Mono Prints being judged live by an invited Judge, it cannot run under the current regulations. Rather than cancel we are suggesting that we run a Virtual Competition for a new trophy comprising 4 Colour PDIs and 4 Mono PDIs – We obviously need an early response. So please could you contact me as below to advise if you are prepared to take part in such a Competition.
  1. Ace of Clubs Day – This in our Calendar is scheduled to take place on the 21st February 2021 with your entries needing to be with us on the 17th January 2021. This also is an attended event being judged by 3 Judges, with each Club putting 8 PDIs into Round 1; then having witnessed the Judges response selecting a further 8 new PDIs for Round 2 and then moving on to either the Plate or Final Round where the Club will need to select up to 20 PDIs. This usually comprises large audiences moving around dealing with their members and chatting about the outcomes so well outside any COVID_19 rules. Rather than cancel this event we are suggesting that we could run a Virtual Competition based on 30 PDIs with the normal restrictions regarding numbers of members and nature prints – with no on the day selections or changes – a simple battle. So please could you contact me as below to advise if you are prepared to take part in such a Competition.
  1. Welsh Salon of Photography – This in our calendar has a closing date of 7th March 2021, when our AGM is scheduled to happen. We believe that this event can still happen as the judging is done typically with only a small handful of helpers and 3 judges – so as with 2020 we are happy this can go ahead with proper precautions. Expect to see details from the Salon Chairman Cliff Emery soon.
  1. Ace of Prints – This in our calendar is scheduled to take place on the 18th July 2021 with the closing date being 27th June 2021. We will not make any decision on this event until April 2021 when we can see how the situation has changed regarding the epidemic.
  1. Summary
  1. We are cancelling the Memorial Trophies Day and offering a Virtual 4 Colour PDI and 4 Mono PDI Competition – we need your feedback as to whether you will take part.
  2. We are cancelling the Ace of Clubs Competition and offering a virtual 30 PDI Competition – we need you feedback as to whether you will take part.
  3. We are currently planning on still running the Welsh Salon of Photography – look forward to a message from the Chairman Cliff Emery soon.
  4. We are holding any decision regarding the Ace of Prints Competition until April 2021 – and hope that the world will be more normal then.

Thank you for reading these notes and please advise me soonest as to your likely participation in the replacement events.
