The day was made possible because of the help given by many dedicated people and I would like to thank them all, in particular. The expertise of our Judges for their detailed critique, and fairness in their assessment, maintaining the high standard of photography needed to gain the prestigious award of AWPF. Our grateful thanks to our President Peter Young for opening the proceedings, Guy Butler-Madden for suppling the display stands, and packing the prints away after assessment. Chris Powell for supplying his superb panel, as an example panel of excellence in at the start. Martin Nagle for transporting the equipment to and from the stores in Bridgend, Ron Lines, Paul James for helping to load the prints on the stand, Paul also wrote the Risk Assessment and provided all the safety equipment, and much more, and our Zoom Team, Del Jones & Susan Surridge. Thank you all.

The standard was very high this year and those less successful candidates, all of which were so close to gaining the award, are recommended to address the constructive comments made by the judges and apply again next year.
