PAGB GROUP International Salon Competition 2015-2016
This competition is open to members of the PAGB Group only
There are five Salons only, these are selected by the group leaders. All the Salons we have chosen are under the patronage of FIAP.
You may enter as many sections as you wish in each Salon however only the number of acceptances in ONE section in each exhibition will be taken into account for the competition (because some people don’t enter all the classes).
You may choose which section you would like to count after the results are out.
We will give one point for an acceptance and an extra point for an award such as a medal/certificate etc.
When the results of all the exhibitions are known then we will add the points and present the prize!
This year all the Salons will take place in different countries.
The group leaders will not take part.
The Salons for this season are
2015/426 3rd Cork International Salon of Photography

The PAGB Distinctions group has been set up to help people get the many distinctions available to them through the PAGB and FIAP distinctions route. The group encourages members to strive to achieve the very high standard of photography required to achieve these distinctions.
We will also look at work for people who are trying to enter images into both National and International Photographic Salons and encourage members to enter these competitions, as accepted images will often help gain the FIAP distinctions.
We meet at 7.00pm on the first Monday of the month unless it is a bank holiday, in which case the meeting is moved to the second Monday. The meetings take place in the small hall in the Tangmere Village Centre.
Patron: The Right Worshipful Mayor of Chichester. Affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain through the Southern Counties Photographic Federation.
