The judge will be Peter Weaver LRPS, CPAGB, APAGB from Bristol.
This was a very successful competition when we held it last year. I am sure that this year it will be even better, and I look forward to receiving your entry, and meeting you on the day.
Aberdare Camera Club.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org but a name familiar to you is being used to disguise that bit.
Report all such emails by forwarding them to: email@example.com
Ron Lines recently published some advice in the WPF Facebook Group for any WPF members thinking about going for any of the FIAP Distinctions so we thought we’d reproduce it here.
Does anyone have a completed FIAP distinction application? I’ll be closing the books for this year’s applications soon.
