Northern Counties Photographic Federation
WELCOME to the web site for the Northern Counties Photographic Federation (NCPF). The Federation is the ‘umbrella’ organisation, serving photographic clubs and societies throughout the North of England and this web site is designed to further that service.
**PAGB Awards for Photographic Merit - a FREE workshop offer **
PAGB are offering a FREE APM Workshop in, or near Dumfries, on
Saturday 13th December 2014.
It is being held in advance of the “closed” Adjudication on the Sunday.
Roger and Judith Parry plus Christine Widdall will be advising, as well as Libby & Neil Smith, Anne Greiner, Simon Allan and of course Rod Wheelans (Chairman of the APM Sub-Committee). This is a great opportunity, and a generous offer, for members of Northern Counties Club, if you are prepared to travel a bit.
If anybody is interested please contact Rod Wheelans by email to book your place.
**Introducing our new Webmaster**
It is with great pleasure the we are able to announce that at it meeting on the 26th of this month the NCPF Executive co-opted Gerry Adcock ARPS CPAGB of Hexham & District PS on to the Executive Committee as "Webmaster Designate".
We welcome Gerry on board for what is an important role for the federation. Gerry has volunteered to take on the role as webmaster and will work alongside your current incumbent for the coming season, with a view to being appointed "Webmaster" at the next AGM and taking over fully.
**FURTHER INFORMATION re the NCPF Portfolios**
As you already know, due to Bob Shanks our Portfolio Secretary being taken ill, production of the CD`S covering the above awards will unfortunately be delayed, and they will not be available until the end October 2014.
Your Competition Secretary`s have now been sent updated information and booking forms for the two Portfolio's. We have however taken the opportunity of including a link to that correspondence and booking form here:-Portfolio Bookin Form
Please Note:- As a result of Bob's illness he has been obliged to resign as Portfolio Secretary. We are therefore appealing for a willing volunteer to come forward to take over the post. It is one where the incumbant works as part of the Competitions Sub-Committee and therefore does have support in his role.
Contact us:- This is our site and much of the its success will depend on you, the members using it, and supplying relevant content to be included on it. Specific “Contact” email addresses are displayed where applicable, and these will direct your enquiry or comment directly to the person best placed to deal with it. For example the contact link on the “Northern Focus” pages will take you directly to the Editor of the Bulletin. More general enquiries should be sent to the Webmaster.
Keeping yourself up to date:- Periodically (weekly or fortnightly depending on circumstances) we will circulate an email to all club secretaries, with a request that they re-circulate it to their members. This will itemise updates to the web site so that you can more easily keep yourself up to date. Posters will still be sent to Club Secretaries for placing on club notice boards. If you want to keep up to date in this way please ask your club secretary to forward these circulations on to you.
