Welsh Salon update

The WPF Executive is very much aware that entries were made just before the lockdown. The prints are unpacked and assembled, ready for selection, but it has been impossible to take matters any further. The prints are being held safely.

During the lockdown, the Executive discussed whether to judge the print submissions as PDIs. It was agreed unanimously that this would be unfair to entrants who had spent time, effort and creativity in presenting prints in a manner most appropriate to the message they wish to convey. It was decided that, as soon as it is safe to do so, the entries would be judged behind closed doors using WPF judges and the minimum “staffing” level.  It is unlikely that there will be a framed or, indeed, unframed exhibition.

It must be recognised that most of the Executive members are in the categories that are shielding, at risk or vulnerable. However, now that the lockdown in Wales is gradually easing, the Executive will decide how to undertake the selection process in as safe a manner as possible and what to do afterwards. The first task will be to identify a venue that will permit the process to take place.
