COVID-19 and Government Advice

The WPF urges all clubs and members to follow Government advice.

Some of us are thinking about online activities that we might provide.  Please keep your eye on Newsflash and PAGB e-news.

We hope you all keep safe and healthy.

UPDATED List of Online Judges & Lecturers

List updated.

Huge thanks to Susan Surridge of Baglan Bay PS who has taken considerable time and trouble to compile a list of WPF judges and lecturers who are prepared to do online judging or presenting during the current pandemic.

You can find the updated list here.

Online Speakers & Judges

When a judge or lecturer (I’ll call them speakers for convenience) is listed in the PAGB Handbook, he/she has entered into a compact with all the clubs affiliated to the Alliance. That compact says, in essence, that the speaker will give his/her time to the clubs for no remuneration. Reasonable expenses are payable and those […]

Lucy Jane Purrington Videos

Lucy Jane Purrington has put together a short video describing how and where 20 of her images were made.It is well worth a watch.

You can find this video here.

Ace of Prints Cancelled

The Ace of Prints should have had a closing date of 21st June and a judging date of 5th July and we would normally now be sending out a formal reminder and a set of rules.

However, we have no option but to formally cancel the 2020 event.

We choose our 2 Clubs for the […]

Virtual Battle at Morriston

Morriston Camera Club has been running weekly meetings on Zoom for a few weeks now, but on the 24 April 2020 we held our first ever online inter club competition.

Eight clubs competed in the inaugural “Bay Challenge” Competition, which was instigated as a reaction to the current Lockdown situation several weeks ago.

We had […]

David’s List of You Tube Videos

This from David Straker at Abergavenny… Thanks David!

In case anyone is kicking their heels, I’ve added a page on the Abergavenny website for interesting YouTube channels, including for general photography and editing.


For the uninitiated, channels contain multiple videos and are often the work of one person or team.

If you know […]

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 […]

Ed Cloutman on judging during Covid

I would be quite happy to judge an online inter-club competition if a club was prepared to organise it. 

I have done this remotely before and it takes the form of a PtoE file with voice-over, so it is just the same as a club night but you have to watch it at home on […]

A Message from the PAGB President

Taken from the latest edition of PAGB e-news which you can read here.

In view of the current situation that we are all facing it would be remiss of me not to contribute to this issue of e-news concerning the outbreak of COVD 19 which is having a drastic effect upon all of us.

The […]

Llanelli Video Link

On the 18th March we were presented with a link to a video from a judge who decided to give us a print comp critique via video link as our venue and judge were not available due to the current corona virus clamp down.

I thought this might be something to share on WPF Newsflash, […]

About 9 members linked up last night and Colin Lawrence, gave a Powerpoint  presentation of his images, which was well received.  Even if members did not have a camera on their monitors, they could […]
