2021 Inter Federation Competition Results

Below are the Results for the Open and Nature 2021 Inter Federation Competition.

Open Results     Open Individual Scores
We came joint 9th with an average of 11.533 points out of a maximum of 15. I would like to thank all those photographers who provided images for the WPF to use – but in particular I should like to congratulate:
Gordon Cook of Swansea Camera Club whose image “A Sign of the Times” which earned a PAGB Ribbon and scored 14 points!

Nature Results     Nature Individual Scores
We came joint 10th with an average of 11.867 points out of a maximum of 15. I should like to thank all those photographers who provided images for the WPF to use – but in particular I should like to congratulate:
Emma Woodhouse of RPC whose image “Fighting Gulls” which earned a PAGB Ribbon and score 15 points and
Susan Carter of Monmouth CC whose image “Grizzly Bear with Salmon” which earned a PAGB Ribbon and scored 14 points and
Neville Thomas of Afan Nedd CC whose image “Vietnamese Mossy Frog” which earned a PAGB Ribbon and scored 14 points!

Apologies for our initial error in saying that Emma Woodhouse was from a different club. It has now been corrected.

Gwynfryn Jones, Master of Print

Huge congratulations to Gwynfryn Jones of Gwynfa CC who received an acceptance in the 2021 the Master of Print competition with his print “Social Distancing”, see below.

We believe Gwynfryn to be the only successful WPF entrant this year. It is his third acceptance in three years in a competition limited to only 60 acceptances. Well done indeed.

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.
