The Photographic Alliance of Great Britain




Awards for Photographic Merit


The Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) represents all the photographic societies around the country, and have a series of Merit awards that recognises photographic achievement by its members. The assessment days move around Britain and having entered a panel of prints to the PAGB for adjudication I was informed that my entry would be assessed on 22nd April 2013 in Birmingham.

I travelled down to Birmingham to experience the judging and to view, not only the other images that were entered, but the standard required for the awards. I was really delighted when I found out that not only had I achieved my aim of 'Credit of the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain' (CPAGB), and I am now entitled to use those letters after my name, but that all ten of my prints either achieved or were higher than the pass mark that was necessary.





In October 2017 I travelled to Newcastle to attend a Royal Photographic Society assesment day for which I had submitted a panel of ten prints. There were quite a few photographers showing their work and I became very nervous while waiting for my work to be shown, especially as there had been a few failures before it was my turn. However after my panel was scrutinised at close quarters by a select panel of judges I was very pleased to have been awarded a Licentate (LRPS) from the society.
