David Harris being presented with his award of CPAGB by Peter Rocchiccioli, Vice-Chairman of the SCPF
The PAGB Group meets on Monday 9th May at 7.00pm in the small hall in the Tangmere Village Centre. Please come early to help to set up as we assess both prints and PDIs so there is much setting up to do.
At this meeting Carole Speight APAGB will be our guest judge to assess our images. Carole is a very experienced judge so we are delighted to have her attend the meeting.
More success for the club at the APM Adjudication in Gateshead last weekend when PAGB Group member Sheila Tester was awarded the distinction of DPAGB from the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain. This is a very highly desired and difficult to achieve distinction so well done Sheila!
I’m delighted to announce that PAGB Group member David Harris has been awarded the distinction of CPAGB from the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain. This is a difficult distinction to achieve and requires a very high standard of photography. We are all familiar with David’s beautiful nature images, his award is very well deserved.
Well done David.
