PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY OF AMERICA
Hello PSA members in Wales:
I have been asked to publicise the PSA Individual Portrait Competition; it would be good to
have a few Welsh members taking part.
Here is the link https://psa-photo.org/index.php?divisions-pid-individual-portrait-competition
There is no fee. Two entries each at 1024 x 768. Just another opportunity to put up your work for judging. Why not have a go?

DPAGB - What is it?
The Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) is a membership organisation that co-ordinates activities for
photographic Clubs in England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland (including the Channel Islands and Isle of Man)
through 15 geographical Federations, of which the NWPA is one.
Within their scheme of Awards for Photographic Merit (APMs) their second award is Distinction of the Photographic
Alliance of Great Britain and is held for life, a holder being entitled to insert the letters DPAGB after their name. The APMs are only open to members of Clubs affiliated to the PAGB through their Federations and they must have been an active member of an affiliated Club for a minimum of 3 years for DPAGB. It is not necessary to already be a holder of the CPAGB in order to apply for the DPAGB, you can go straight in at Distinction level if you wish.
Submissions are assessed at least twice a year by 6 assessors selected from the PAGB list of judges. Applicants may attend if they wish unless it is one of the occasional, closed "catch-up" sessions.
Each application will be assessed as individual pieces of work and should consist of the following: 15 monochrome prints or digital images OR 15 colour prints or digital images OR a mixture of 15 monochrome and colour prints or digital images - it cannot contain a combination of prints and digital images, it's either one or the other.
The standard required is summarised thus: “Photography that would be likely to achieve a high level of acceptance in Open Exhibitions.”
Cost is a one-off £90 (2018), no annual subscription is required.
Further details are to be found on the PAGB website.
Applications must be made through the current NWPA Awards Officer: Phil Chadwick.
