Congratulations to Sheila TesterDPAGB who won this season’s International Salon Competition, organised by the PAGB Group.

Several other members of the PAGB Group have had great success in the Salons this year with numerous acceptances and awards between them. The PAGB Group will run another competition in the coming season. Details will follow in due course.
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.
