The April 2010 awards proved very successful for WPF potographers, so much so that none other than Rod Wheelans noted in the latetst PAGB e-news – “I was struck by the number of successful entries from Wales ï¿½ something very positive is obviously going on there”
Congratulations to Cliffï¿½ Emery (Neath) awarded his CPAGB in Prints one of the 18 successful applications from 36 submissions.
For the DPAGB Prints there were 32 applicationsï¿½ of which 19 were successful including our own Jill Baxter, Andrew Baxter and Paul Richards (Tenby); Haydn Thomas (Neath); Les Loosemore (Bridgend) and Mike Davies (The Vale). Well done everyone. Let’s see if we can keep this success rate going!
