PAGB Awards for Photographic Merit – News

As previously announced, there will be no adjudications open to an audience in 2020 and both the April & November adjudications will now be combined into one closed adjudication “hosted” by the PAGB, possibly early in 2021. The host rota has been put back one year so that the MCPF will now host the first open adjudication. Unfortunately the chosen venue is not available in April 2021 and we have agreed that the adjudication will now be held on 15 and 16 May 2021.

Everyone who has already entered should by now have opted for either the “closed” adjudication or for one of the dates in 2021. If you have not yet done so, please do not delay!

The May 2021 Adjudication still has openings at all three levels but, since 15 MPAGB applicants have been carried forward to Sunday 16 May, the DPAGB and MPAGB sections, both of which are held on Sunday, are likely to fill up quite soon.

Online Advisory Service: The Feedback I have received has been overwhelmingly positive but around one third of you have not responded, not even to tell me that you have completed. If I don’t hear from either side, then it is difficult for me to allocate anyone else to that Adviser, so I would be grateful if you will tell me when you have completed the exercise. Honest, polite, constructive feedback is always useful on both sides and I am always grateful to receive it. These online advisory arrangements have been a great success with over 150 1:1 sessions arranged. In the ongoing Covid-19 circumstances, we have decided to carry on offering advice until we can start to meet up again – or until the volunteers get tired. If you’d like advice from one of our volunteers, please e-mail me with your name and distinctions already achieved, your Club and Federation, the level being looked at and if you have applied or have been accepted for an Adjudication already. Can you also mention if your application will be primarily Nature. It will be helpful too, to know if you are applying in Print or PDI although we have no way of looking at your prints and can only advise on content, rather than the quality of the Print. I’ll then send you further details about the process and the name and e-mail of a possible adviser. In the meantime, I would suggest that you should read APM Leaflets 1 and 8 from the PAGB Library which will give you an idea of what to expect. http://www.thepagb.org.uk/library/

If you have any specific questions, please e-mail me, rather than the APM Secretary or anyone else. I may not be able to respond individually but I will provide answers through these Bulletins.

APM sub-committee Chairman, Rod Wheelans rod@creative-camera.co.uk
