PAGB Recorded Lecture Service

Camera clubs and societies have made the decision to cancel their club meetings in an attempt to reduce the risk of infection of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). To support clubs and societies during this difficult time we have decided to relax the terms of business for the PAGB RLS and allow the distribution of recorded lectures to members within their respective club or society.

Clubs and societies are asked to adhere to the following conditions:

  1. Clubs and societies may only distribute a PAGB lecture to their members providing they own a license for that lecture.
  2. Clubs and societies may only distribute a PAGB lecture to their members up until 31 May 2020.
  3. Clubs and societies are asked to ensure that all copies (including any links) are destroyed or removed on or before 31 May 2020.
  4. A club official must send an email informing the PAGB RLS Sec of the club or societies intention to distribute a lecture, prior to doing so giving details of said lecture.

PAGB Event Rule Changes

The PAGB Executive has reviewed and agreed changes to the General Conditions for all events, the Monochrome definition and the Nature definition have changed and new rules have been introduced for ‘out of area’ members.

The rules for each event and the guidance on image repetition have been updated to match the changes. The object is to make compliance by entrant federations and clubs and photographers easier to understand, and so reduce problems arising between entrants and event organisers.

See the individual documents via the competitions page or by viewing them in the links below.

General Conditions (for all events)

PAGB (FIAP) Monochrome Definition (for some events).

PAGB Nature Definition (for some events).

Guidance about Image Repetition in Events (for all events).

There are also new rules for ‘Out of Area Photographers‘. For the PAGB Events with Club Entrants (Print Championship, Projected Digital Images Championship, GB Trophies, GB Cups), a Club may not enter the work of more than one Photographer who resides more than thirty miles outside the boundaries of the Club’s Federation. See the ‘General Conditions’ here.
