Awards for Photographic Merit Adjudication

This Adjudication is now closed for entry with Prints but there are still spaces for PDI.

The Adjudication will be held in two different venues. Prints on Saturday 25 November in Nottingham and the hosts, N&EMPF, have secured an excellent venue for the November Adjudication. Unfortunately, the facility has proved unsuitable for the satisfactory projection of PDI which will be on Sunday 26 November in Oldbury at Smethwick PS Clubrooms in the Old Schoolhouse, Churchbridge, Oldbury, B69 2AS.

Both days will be open to an audience and ticket information has been sent to entrants. See above for ticket purchases. Tickets, priced at £15.00 are available from the Organising Secretary. Please include an sae for return. Although the Adjudication is being held in two venues, tickets for both Saturday and Sunday should both be purchased from the Organising Secretary. Cheques payable to the North & East Midlands Photographic Federation.
