AWPF Distinctions Places & Workshop

There are just a few places remaining for the 2023 AWPF distinction.

If you are interested in the challenge of achieving this sought after distinction then please apply following the instructions at the WPF website Distinctions – AWPF – The Welsh Photographic Federation (mywpf.org) or email me Paul James at this email address distinctions@thewpf.co.uk for further information on how to apply.

The AWPF workshop will be held on the 13th of May at The Cynon Valley Museum to coincide with the official opening of the Welsh Salon Exhibition.  You do not have to apply for AWPF to attend the workshop but space for the AWPF workshop is very limited so if you are interested in the challenge of the AWPF this year or in future years and want to come along to find out what is involved then please email me at distinctions@thewpf.co.uk  so that I can book you a place.

Even if you are yet to apply, we will have a number of AWPF ‘tutors’ at the workshop who will be able to answer questions and also look at any ideas you have for your own AWPF panel and provide you with feedback to get you going.

Paul James, WPF distinctions officer.

The Market is centrally placed in Bridgend (CF31 1DL). The Rhiw carpark is immediatly opposite the  Market, and offers 3 hours free car parking

We intend to use the 50 best prints from the Memorial Trophy Competition to hang at this venue for February and March.  In January we will use the space for an ad-hoc exhibition. This will bring our Federation, its photographers and their images to a new audience.
