On the 4th November 2018, the AWPF assessment day was held, there were 23 applications, 21 print submissions and 2 digital submissions. 13 print panels and 2 digital panels were accepted and those photographers were awarded the distinction of AWPF and added to the WPF roll of honour. Congratulations to them all!
Achieving an AWPF is a difficult, and time-consuming task and will tax the skills of any photographer, such is the high standard required, well done to everyone accepted.

Our commiserations to those applicants who were not successful this time. The standard was very high this year and those candidates, all of which were so close to gaining the award, are recommended to address the constructive comments made by the judges and apply again next year.
