This competition was the concept of Ed Cloutman about 6 weeks ago.  It was held on 9 January 2021 by Zoom with over 90 people having booked to watch the proceedings.  117 club members had entered 1 photograph each, being the best they had made or, in some cases, their favourite.

The judges, Colin Harrison […]

I’m pleased to announce that the WPF has purchased a Zoom Pro licence which it is making available to clubs from 6-Jul-20.  It enables a meeting of up to 100 people for 24 hours which one of the WPF Executive will host (but almost certainly not for 24 hours).  This will enable clubs, who have […]

Online Speakers & Judges

When a judge or lecturer (I’ll call them speakers for convenience) is listed in the PAGB Handbook, he/she has entered into a compact with all the clubs affiliated to the Alliance. That compact says, in essence, that the speaker will give his/her time to the clubs for no remuneration. Reasonable expenses are payable and those […]

Ace of Prints Cancelled

The Ace of Prints should have had a closing date of 21st June and a judging date of 5th July and we would normally now be sending out a formal reminder and a set of rules.

However, we have no option but to formally cancel the 2020 event.

We choose our 2 Clubs for the […]

David’s List of You Tube Videos

This from David Straker at Abergavenny… Thanks David!

In case anyone is kicking their heels, I’ve added a page on the Abergavenny website for interesting YouTube channels, including for general photography and editing.

For the uninitiated, channels contain multiple videos and are often the work of one person or team.
