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.

Important Notice about email scams

Watch out for those tired old ‘substitution’ email scams, they are doing the rounds again.

What happens is that you get an email from someone pretending to be an officer of your club or your Federation and they are asking you for some kind of help, financial of course. The latest one targetted our Federation President.

Note, emails are not being hacked. They just pretend to be someone else by covering up the actual send email. The latest emails came from but a name familiar to you is being used to disguise that bit.

Report all such emails by forwarding them to:
