List of Judges

List of Judges – The Welsh Photographic Federation

Amendments, deletions or additions to all judges’ information should be notified to: Judges and Presenters Secretary, Ed CloutmanHe can be contacted at: Email:

I know there are quite a few paragraphs below to be read, but PLEASE take a little time to read them ALL, as the information is important and will help you to understand the system.

Standard Booking Form giving details of the judging event can be found here.  Please use it as it has all the relevant information on it.  Remember it may be many months before the event takes place so a record of the agreement is invaluable.  See also Judges Guidelines and The Role of the Club. 

Judges Assessment Forms – Please could you nominate a reliable and impartial member of your CLUB to REGULARLY fill in the Online Judges assessment form.  They do not need to be a committee member. Your feedback is valuable for both the judges and the WPF in maintaining and improving high standards. Responses are treated in strict confidence. Constructive criticism will be passed on to the judge. All Judges are subject to Welsh Photographic Federation Annual Renewal. The WPF reserves the right to remove Judges from the list.   

Judges will be sent feedback about every 6 months showing the comments that clubs have made on their behalf.  It is the responsibility of the judge to pursue clubs and to ensure that they get all their returns. 

Judges:  If you have any high praise or complaints about the way you have been treated by any club, or have any useful suggestions on how clubs could make your evening with them more pleasurable, please email me at the WPF at the address above.

Judge Codes:  You will see codes which give the judge’s preferences.  This is only a guide.  Most judges will cover any topic.   Please would judges email me if they would like any of the codes altered.


Please will judges remind clubs, on the night, to fill in the Assessment Forms, so that you get your feedback.  

PLEASE CLUBS: introduce the judge properly and try and take 5 minutes at the most for notices on nights when you have invited a judge or speaker.  I have had quite a few complaints about laborious starts to meetings with notices taking over 15 minutes.  This is not fair on the judge/speaker, who should have timed his/her  evening to your start and finish times.
