Memorial Trophy Exhibition.

Some good news; following on from our PAGB Exhibition in the Quadrant Shopping Centre in Swansea, Urban Foundry (who arranged the Swansea exhibition) have now organised a space for us to hold an Exhibition in Bridgend Indoor Market from January to March.

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.

We will also be looking at the practicality of displaying the PDIs from this event on a monitor at the same time – but details need checking.
