SCPF Exhibition 2018  

It’s that time again!   Registration for the 2018 Exhibition in Salisbury is now live online.

The process is as before: clubs wishing to participate must register online before the end of August, along with payment of the entry fee. Uploading of entries online will be in October, the exact dates to be confirmed …this will be after the uploading window for League entries.

Prints will need to be taken to the Club Reps’ meeting on 17th November, and there is no leeway on this as the judging takes place just two days later! The judge will be Roger Ford FRPS EFIAP/g

As before, due to the available space in the gallery we can only accept print entries from 35 clubs, but there is no limit on the number of PDI club entries. Entries will comprise 6 prints and/or 8 PDIs

We do ask all participating clubs to help with stewarding the Exhibition. Without stewards we are unable to provide catalogues, display the PDIs or provide information to the visitors, which really devalues the event. Last time we only covered about half the available stewarding slots, and this was provided by just nine clubs …. so lets do better this time round!

PAGB results

Set out below is Peter’s full report and results of the PAGB Inter-Federation Competition and Exhibition. For this all our entries are scored, with the top 15 counting towards to Inter-Fed Championships. Then the Exhibition is selected but with fewer images and ensuring representation from every Federation, so the scores are not the sole determining factor in this. Thanks to so many of our members we had a great set of images to select from, and this is reflected in the excellent results for SCPF.

2017 Sony PAGB Inter-Federation Print & Projected Digital Image Exhibitions

I am pleased to provide the information on the PAGB Inter-Fed Exhibition Competition 2017 results, which were judged on 3rd June, at: Carleton Community Centre, Carleton Road, Pontefract, hosted by the YPU. The first page has the results of our Federation position in each category and the images that have been accepted including the photographers’ names. The next four pages show all of the marks for each individual entry. My congratulations to all of our members that have had their work accepted and in particular to Marcin Ciesielski for a PAGB Ribbon awarded to his image Coco. It should be noted that our Colour prints achieved the 4th position which is an outstanding result. Thank you all for your support, the standard was exceptional and many excellent images were not selected. The non-selected prints will be returned at the September Reps’ meeting.

The 2017 Sony PAGB Inter-Federation Print Exhibition will be officially opened by The Mayor of Rotherham, Councillor Eve Rose Keenan accompanied by Mr. Pat Keenan on Monday 10th July 2017 at 1.00pm at the Rotherham Riverside Library, Main Street, Rotherham, S60 1EA.The Winning Federation Trophies will be presented on the opening day of the Exhibition.

Annual Exhibition 2017 from 5 to 12th August

The Annual Exhibition 2017 will open from 5 to 12 August this year at the Assembly Room, North Street, Chichester.

This note is to remind members that the deadline for both Print and PDI entries is Thursday 27 April.

Guidance Notes for entrants

Arrangements for the Club’s Annual Exhibition 2017 are well underway. The success of the exhibition relies heavily on the support of Club members to volunteer a small amount of their time during the exhibition week to help with stewarding as well as in the kitchen


The link above takes you to the details of the tasks to be covered.

If you wish to enter the exhibition, please register all your entries via Photocomp.

Boxes will be out on the stage every Thursday evening to receive Members’ Print entries up until 27 April. Please make sure you place your Prints in the correct box, which are labelled Club Class, Intermediate Class and Advanced Class.

I will shortly be asking Members to assist with the stewarding of the exhibition and will circulate a rota and would be very grateful for your support. In addition, the kitchen will be open for sale of refreshments (teas, coffees and cakes) throughout the exhibition and Carmel Lynch has agreed to organise this. A separate rota for the kitchen will also be circulated.

Should you have any queries, please contact Wojtek Boden, Exhibition Secretary
