"Congratulations to our Members"
During the last couple of months a few of our members have achieved distinctions from both the RPS and the PAGB and our congratulations go, as usual, to each of them. At the recent Adjudications for PAGB Awards for Photographic Merit, held in Northern Ireland, two members of Morton PS, received recognition, whilst a few weeks earlier two Northallerton CC members gained their Associateships with the RPS. Also of great note are the remarkable successes of members of Hexham & District PS.
Morton's Competition Secretary, Gerald Chamberlin AFIAP DPAGB, submitted a successful panel of 15 Prints and was awarded the PAGB's Distinction Award (DPAGB), following on from gaining his AFIAP earlier in the year. Also from Morton PS, John Spittle CPAGB kept up the good work by being granted the Credit Award (CPAGB) with successful panel of 10 Colour prints.

A few weeks earlier Ken and Chris Hadfield ARPS both celebrated gaining the "Associateship" Award (ARPS) from the Royal Photographic Society, following their submission of two separate panels to the Society. Their submissions were both made to the Nature Panel and I am told that whilst they were worried that their work would not be to the required standard, the RPS thought otherwise and asked if they could retain their panels for future use by them. Looking at the images below, I am not surprised.
Two images from their successful Associate panels, Ken's on the left and Chris' on the right.
These awards are not granted lightly and all four should be rightly proud of their achievements and we at Northern Counties join in in recognising their deserved rewards; well done each.
I wonder if, in recent times, any other club has equalled the outstanding record of success that has been achieved by members of Hexham & District PS in respect of distinctions gained from the RPS. Over the whole of 2012 at total of ten members gained disinctions, at Focus in March, Edinburgh in May and Bath in September. They are:-
Marjorie Baillie LRPS
Michael Borthwick LRPS
Associate in Photo-Travel:-
A remarkable set of result for which the club are to be congratulated.
"South Tyne Area PDI Competition win for Gateshead CC"
This year's event was hosted by Winlaton CC on the 27th November 2012 and resulted in a narrow win for Gateshead CC, over Whickham PC and Hexham & District PS who came second and third respectively.
There was a good turn out on the evening with six of the seven clubs in the South Tyne Area taking part, each submitting eight entries into the competition. The judge for the evening was Malcolm Kus ARPS DPAGB EFIAP, from Alnwick & District CC, and he commented on the high standard of the entries.
"Car Park Tracks" by John Wilmore of Gateshead CC
At the end of the evening Gateshead CC, were chased hard by Whickham PC but in the end came out winners by the slimmest of margins, one point out of over 200. The Eric Hopper Memorial Trophy for the Best Image in the competition went to Gateshead newcomer, John Wilmore witha maximum 30 marks for his image "Car park Tracks".
"Moorish Rain" by Alan Fowler of Gateshead CC

"Sunderland PA win the Wear Area Battle"
This was held on 23rd November 2012 at the normal venue of Washington Camera Club who provided their high standard of organisation and their ability to make everyone feel at home.
Six Clubs took part in this year’s competition and they were, Bishop Auckland PS, Chester-le-Street CC, Durham PS, Esh Winning CC, Sunderland PA and the hosts, Washington CC. The esteemed Judge was Jim Welsh LRPS CPAGB of Blyth PS who delivered his opinions in his own unique style which everyone enjoyed hearing.
At the end of the evening Sunderland PA, currently celebrating their 125 Anniversary, came away the winners by 5 points from last year's winners, Durham PS, with Washington CC only a point further behind. The image with the top mark of 30 was awarded to “Monsoon” by Alan Brown MA(Photo) of Sunderland PA. Judy Beveridge, Sunderland’s chairperson, accepted the Wear Area Trophy and, in his absence she also collected the Medal for the best image in the competition by Alan Brown

3rd:- Washington CC (179 points)

Nearly 80 members, together with family and friends, attended the our Annual Presentation Day to share in the success of their fellow members. Each of over 160 awards from the 2012 ‘Annual’ and ‘International Salon’, were presented by the NCPF President, Pax Garabedian DPAGB EFIAP PPSA.
"Abandoned" by Colin Marr, of Dumfries CC, which was awarded the "Joan Rooker Trophy" for the Best Overall Entry into the NCPF Annual Competitions in 2012. It was also awarded the "Bill Grear Trophy" for the Best Creative Print
As each presentation was made it was accompanied by the projection of the appropriate photograph. The event was sponsored by "Fotospeed" enabling the ceremony to be free to all members. The sponsor also generously donated valuable boxes of print paper for the Raffle, ably operated by John Smith, AFIAP APAGB, and Joseph Duffy, LRPS, CPAGB, APAGB. Thanks to all our generous raffle donors including "Brittania Picture Frames".
Patricia Kearton LRPS CPAGB, of Northallerton CC, is presented with the "PSA Gold Medal" for the Best Nature Image in this year's Northern Counties International Salon of Photography by Pax Garabedian, NCPF President.
Many of the winning photographs can be viewed on this web site by visiting either the:- 2012 Annual Competitions Gallery or the the Gallery for the 33rd International Salon of Photography where all the medal winning images from around the world are also to be viewed
The ceremony was organised the NCPF Events Sub-Committee, who also managed the 2012 Annual Competitions. However, special thanks are due to Margaret Welsh for the listing and scripting, David Ord for Registrations and the compilation and presentation of the titling and images, David Illingworth for collection and preparation of all trophies and certificates and Jane H. Black, ARPS. FPSA, Hon.PAGB, Chairman of the International Sub-Committee, with Vince Rooker, ARPS, DPAGB, EFIAP, APAGB, for delivery of the commentaries.
Finally, NCPF wish to show their appreciation to Stokesley PC and Sunderland PA for the loan for display of their Club Championship’s winning prints, Whickham PC and Vince Rooker for the loan of print stands, and Amble PG for the loan of a ‘back-up’ screen. The Events Officer wishes to add a note of thanks to ‘Novotel’ management and staff, for their continued support and co-operation.
"Beamish Trophy Results"
Two members from the same family took away the top honours when the Beamish Trophy Competition was judged on Friday 26th October 2012. Whilst David Illingworth, of Morpeth CC was placed 2nd, it was his wife Elaine, from Cramlington CC, who carried off the trophy with her print "The Teacher in Class". Third place went to David Ord from Ryton & District CC.
"The Teacher in Class" by Elaine Illingworth of Cramlington CC
2012 Winner of the Beamish Trophy
As usual, our hosts Washington CC, and especially Ken Henderson and his team, made members of the Events Sub-Committee and club visitors extremely welcome on what was their own club night at Harraton Community Centre. The number of Print entries for the Trophy was disappointing though, with only 24 being submitted into the competition.
"Sarsparella" by Dave Illingworth of Morpeth CC
For future years’ competitions, the Events Sub Committee intend to consider the latter situation and probably will propose to broaden the criteria for entry. Investigation into the practicality for inclusion of a second Beamish Trophy, for a DPI competition, to run alongside, will take place in the coming months. All of the latter is subject to planning and adoption by the NCPF Executive. Hopefully, more details later.
The judges; Stephen Byard, DPAGB, Ken Henderson APAGB and from Beamish Museum (and Durham PS); Julian Harrop, delivered fair judgement and interesting, valid comments on each of the award winners.
"Fry's Choccy and a Bottle of Broon" by David Ord of Ryton & District CC
To complement an entertaining evening, a presentation of six, short AV’s from Vince Rooker was projected. This was the first opportunity to utilise the NCPF’s new Sound System acquired on their behalf by David Ord. Finally, to conclude the event, WCC generously provided, an excellent buffet supper.
"Richard Speirs recognised by PAGB"
At the recent NCPF Judges Seminar (14th October) there was an extra duty for our President, Pax Garabedian to perform. One of the more pleasant ones as this was to present his Immediate Past President, Richard Speirs DPAGB APAGB BPE2* with the Associate certificate from the PAGB (the APAGB Award) for his services to photography.
Richard Speirs (right) being presented with the APAGB Award
by the NCPF President, Pax Garabedian EFIAP PPSA DPAGB
It was particularly appropriate that this award be given to Richard at the Judges Seminar. Richard's contribution to the NCPF is very considerable but he is perhaps deservedly best known in Northern Counties for his work with the Judges Sub-Committee, of which he is currently Chairman, and his inimitable presntations over many years at these seminars. He has served Northern Counties also as President and currently, as well as being Chairman of the Judges Sub-Committee, and Immediate Past President, he is also the Federation's Representative to the PAGB.
Less well known but equally important is his immense contribution to his own club, Morton CC, where having joined their committee in 1979 he has served there continuously for over 30 years in various roles, including Secretary, Programme Secretary and is currently serving his second term as their Chairman. A long list of tasks to which he has added being a member of the PAGB's sub-committee for Awards for Photogrtaphic Merit.
"Past Times" by Richard Speirs DPAGB APAGB BPE2*
Over the years Richard's reputation as a judge has spread through the country and he is now in demand for many regional, national and international events. I can do little better to sum up Richard's approach to his service to fellow members than by quoting from the citation made out for his award - "Richard has the ability to encourage and inspire people around him, to get the best from them and is always willing to give support to anyone needing help." Well done Richard, a well deserved award.
It's Gold for Patricia & Cliff in the Northern Counties International
As in previous years members of our affiliated clubs entered what is our own International salon, known as the "33rd Northern Counties International Salon of Photography". Whilst we have to celebrate some 181 across the five Sections of the Salon, which is no mean achievment in itself, this year we have two special reasons to celebrate.
RPS Gold Medal - Best Monochrome Print in Salon
"Disagreement" by Cliff Banks LRPS AFIAP of Sunderland PA
Northern Counties members picked up two top awards, with the RPS Gold Medal for the Best Monochrome Print going to Cliff Banks LRPS AFIAP or Sunderland PA and the PSA Gold Medal for the Best Nature Image going to one of our own members, Patricia Kearton LRPS CPAGB of Northallerton Camera Club.
PSA Gold Medal - Best Nature Image in Salon
"Swan Lake" by Patricia Kearton LRPS CPAGB of Northallerton CC
Our congratulations go to both Cliff and Patricia for what are a pair of beautful photographs, and which were unanimously awarded the medals by the judges. It is also worthy of mention that Patricia had all four of her photographs in the Nature section accepted into the salon. Well done to both of you.
Northumbria Trophy - Monochrome Print Section
"Frost at Alum Creek" by Guy Davies ARPS EFIAP EPSA of Stokesley PS
In the Monochrome Print Section, we had more success with the Des Clinton Judges Medal went to Leo Palmer FRPS FPSA MPSA EFIAP APAGB, of Hexham & District PS, for "Miss Winky and Friend", and Roy Elwood FRPS EFIAP MPAGB of Whickham PC gained an NCPF Ribbon for "The Cat Walk". The Northumbria Trophy for the best entry by an NCPF worker (not given a higher award) went to Guy Davies ARPS EFIAP EPSA of Stokesley PS for "Frost at Alum Creek".
Northumbria Trophy - Colour Print Section
"Let Them Go First!" by John Thompson ARPS of Alnwick & District CC
Northern Counties Member, Neil Maughan ARPS AFIAP of Durham PS also covered himself in glory in the Colour Prints Section, winning the PSA Bronze Medal for the Best Portrait, with his print "Widower". In addition Paula Davies FRPS EFIAP/s EPSA of Stokesley PS was awarded and NCPF Ribbon for "Closed for the Winter". John Thomspon ARPS of Alnwick & District CC was awarded the Northumbria Trophy for the best entry by and NCPF worker in the Colour Print Section with his print "Let Them Go First".
Northumbria Trophy - General PDI Section
"Chillin" by Joe Grabham AFIAP of Durham PS
In the PDI Section, and beginning with the General Section the Northumbria Trophy for thebest entry by an NCPF worker went to Joe Grabham AFIAP of Durham PS with "Chillin". He met with further success being awarded one of four NCPF Ribbons that went to NCPF members with "Above the Crowd". The other three went to Andrew Nicoll, of Whitley Bay PS with "Turmoil", Sandy Furniss ARPS EFIAP/p MPSA, of Northallerton CC for "Old Trawlers Mull" and to Leo Palmer FRPS FPSA MPSA EFIAP APAGB of Hexham & District PS for "Red Bus".
Northumbria Trophy - Nature PDI Section
"Great Egret with Branch" by Sandy Furniss ARPS EFIAP/p MPSA of Northallerton CC
In the Nature Section, in addition to Patricia's Gold, Sandy Furniss also of Northallerton CC was awarded a FIAP Ribbon for "Red Squirrel with Nut", but his success did not stop there because he was also awarded the Northumbria Trophy for the best entry by an NCPF worker in the Nature Section for "Great Egret with Branch".
Northumbria Trophy - Photo-Travel PDI Section
"Palouse Tree" by Paula Davies FRPS EFIAP/s EPSA of Stokesley PS
And finally, in the Travel Section our members met with further success, with the RPS Bronze Medal for the Best Transport Image going to Keith Robertson ARPS AFIAP of Hexham & District PS for his shot "Three Up in Havana". In addition two more awards went to our members with Tony Potter ARPS EFIAP/s MPSA DPAGB APAGB of West Cumbria PG getting a FIAP Ribbon for "Ara Kishu Headteacher" and John Willams EFIAP EPSA DPAGB of Penrith & District CC an NCPF Ribbon for "Antartic Penninsula". Just to keep family harmony the Northumbria Trophy for the best image by an NCPF worker went to Paula Davies FRPS EFIAP/s EPSA of Stokesley PS with "Palouse Tree".
Well done to all. In picture terms we have concentrated on our local awards but, if you want to see more, including the full lists of Awards and Acceptances, the Statistics and a Gallery of the all the medal winners' photographs, then please go to the International Salon pages of this site at:-

"Sunderland PA Celebrate 125th Anniversary"
Congratulations to Sunderalnd PA, who are celebrating their 125th Anniversary during the forthcoming 2012/13 season. A proud club with an enviable reputation they are planning a substantial programme of visiting lecturers to mark the occasion.
As part of their programme of events one of their best known and respected members Arnold Hubbard FRPS EFIAP APAGB has prepared an update to the history of the Association that was published for their 100th Anniversary and this has been included as a PDF download which you can access by the link at the foot of this news item.
The two pictures shown here are those that won the club's Annual print Compettitons earlier this year. Above we can see "Bend Spray" by Norman Robson and below we can enjoy Denis Howarth's "Sparrowhawk".
We wish Sunderalnd PA every success in their celebrations this year and also for the future. Details of their visiting lecturers have been included at the end of Arnold's article.
"Wigan 10 Win Again at Warwick"
Despite the best efforts of Durham PS and Sunderland PA (our two representatives at Warwick) and over 35 other clubs from around the UK, Wigan 10 once again came out victors in this year's PAGB Annual PDI Club Championships, held at Warwick University on Saturday 14th July.
In front of a full house (over 400 attended the event) we were all treated to some fabulous photography, which is only what we come to expect at this event. There were a number of supporters for Sunderland PA, but it was shame that only one person attended to support Durham. There was general concensus that the judges this year did not display any bias, with excellent landscapes scoring as well as nature and more creative work. For once they were quite happy to hand out maximum scores of 15 whenever justified.
"Great Blue Heron at Nesting Time" by John Wise (Durham PS)
At the end of the first two rounds it was clear that Wigan 10 were on the march again, coming out top at this stage with 214 points. The top 8 clubs went through to the final round, but unfortunately neither Durham nor Sunderland managed to squeeze into that group, and so went on to compete in the Plate Competition in the afternoon. In the Plate, whilst success eluded both of our clubs, Durham's score of 99 points was only 7 behind Tenby & District CC, the winners of the Don Morrison Plate.
"Airborne" by Norman Robson (Sunderland PA)
In the final round both Smethwick PS and Amersham PS tried hard to catch Wigan 10, but they came out second and third respectively with Wigan ending up with a total of 267 points from their 20 images; that is an average score of over 13 per image.
At the end of the day, the raffle was held, and this was almost worth the trip in itself, with PAGB's latest sponsors, Epson, donating on of their Stylus Photo 3000 prints as the main prize, but no I didn't win it.
Full details of the results are included in the below PDF file, which gives all the scores, round by round:-
"Proud Parents seek Olympian Support"
Nick McCormick, son of Mavis and Alan of Hexham PS has been selected to take part in the Olympic Games for Great Britain. His first race is in heats of the 5,000 meters track event on Wednesday 8th August.
Mavis and Alan are rightly proud and have asked that if any of you are near a television on that date that you give him your support. I am sure that we all will wish to be associated with wishing him every success.
"2012 PAGB Alliance Inter-Federation Prints Competition"
The results of this event, held in June, are now to hand and provide pleasant reading, with NCPF being placed 2nd in the Monochrome Section and Joint 4th in the Colour Section. With all 15 federations taking part in each section that is a very creditable result, even if we wern't able to squeeze MCPF out of firts place in the Monochrome Section. The winners of the Colour Section were NEMPF and our congratulations go to both of them.
Our congratulations must also go to Alan Brown of Sunderland PA, whose colour print "We Are Resting" was awarded a PAGB Ribbon, well done Alan. NCPF submitted 15 prints into each section, which were selected during this year's NCPF Annual Competitions, held in May.
"We Are Resting" by Alan Brown of Sunderland PA.
Our congratulations must also go to all those of you whose prints were used in this competition and without which we could not have achieved such a good result. Overall details of the results and the awards are contained in the following downloadable PDF file.
"NCPF Exhibitors' Successes Recognised by FIAP"
This year's submission of applications sent by PAGB to FIAP for FIAP Awards has now been completed. With 139 applicants in total it was the largest entry ever submitted by PAGB and we suspect the largest that any country has ever submitted.
Once again though NCPF Exhibitors were well represented. With 14 applicants we comprised just over 10% of the entry from the 13 different Federations eligible to submit through PAGB. We can now report that along with everyone else all our members, as set out below, were successful.
Tony Potter ARPS EFIAP/s MPSA DPAGB APAGB of West Cumbria PG
Stephen Byard EFIAP DPAGB of Northallerton CC
Christine Hodgson EFIAP PPSA of West Cumbria PG
Alan Walker ARPS EFIAP CPAGB of West Cumbria PG
Julie Walker EFIAP of West Cumbria PG
Gerald Chamberlin AFIAP of Morton PS
Joe Grabham AFIAP of Durham PS
Ian Jolly LRPS AFIAP CPAGB of Carlisle CC
Neil Maughan ARPS AFIAP of Durham PS
Dave Quinn AFIAP of Whickham PC
Keith Robertson ARPS AFIAP of Hexham & District PS
Robert Shanks AFIAP of Gateshead CC
Phil Thompson AFIAP of Workington CC
Alan Wilson AFIAP of Whickham PC
(If anyone's details have not been listed correctly please let the webmaster know)
These awards are granted by FIAP in recognition of members support and successes in International Exhibitions that are Patronised by them. Typically whilst for an AFIAP our members must have achieved some 30 acceptances from at least 10 different photographs, EFIAP required 150 acceptances from 50 different Photographs. In the case of EFIAP Silver the recipient had, in addition to those gained from EFIAP, to have gained another 150 acceptances from a further 50 photographs, but more importantly at least 4 of those photographs must have received awards in different countries, no mean achievment.
Our congratulations go to each and everyone of you for your successes in entering International Exhibitions and we are more than pleased that your efforts have been recognised in this way.
For anyone else that is interested in achieving recognition in this way, you are advised to check out our "Knowledge Base" and also the PAGB web site for more information.
NB:- Be aware that the criteria for both AFIAP and EFIAP has changed for 2013 and fresh changes are on the way very shortly, so you are strongly advised to check out the criteria.
"Tom Fearn APAGB"
It is with great sadness that we report the death of one of our Past Presidents, Tom Fearn APAGB. Tom, who was 83 years of age, passed away peacefully on Sunday 17th June 2012 after a short illness.
Tom was a member of Carlisle Camera Club and served on the NCPF Executive for many years, including as President between 1071 and 1974. He also served on the PAGB Executive as Honorary Treasurer.
Whilst I never had the pleasure to meet Tom; he moved away to live in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire in 1988, I can well remember that during my time as your Federation Secretary, he would write lovely letters in response to routine circulations that I sent to him. Even after all those years away they displayed a keen interest in what was happenbing in Northern Counties.
It is comforting to learn from his son John that he retained his independence and dignity right up to the end. His funeral was held on Monday 25th June at Huddersfield.
"Mixed Weather Fails to Dampen Spirits at Beamish"
Despite mixed weather for the second year, the NCPF ‘Beamish Weekend’, a three day event held on Sat/Sun/Monday 9/10/11th June, which included photographic opportunities for members and an exhibition of members work, proved to be a success yet again.
The Exhibition attracted some 70 prints from our members for display. The vast majority were available for sale at the member’s nominated sum, with 25% going to the Beamish Museum charity. In addition we put on display some 50 prints from the NCPF archive, organised a ‘rolling projected image’ show of the year’s award winning photographs and of last year's NCPF Beamish Trophy.
Photographers and non-photographers alike, were keen to express their appreciation and 6 prints were sold. More encouragingly, during the three days, well in excess of 1000 persons visited the exhibition. Members of the NCPF Events Sub-Committee were delighted to have the opportunity to discuss not only the exhibits with visitors, but also, photography in general and particularly the role of the NCPF, its Clubs and their members.
The occasion was also a great opportunity to meet with both new and old acquaintances from clubs located throughout UK, including Glasgow, Liverpool, Norwich, Kent, Sussex, East Midlands, S. Wales and many more.
A big thank you goes to all our members who supported this event, and we look forward to seeing your entries in this year's "NCPF Beamish Trophy" to be held in October. Full details and an Entry Form are available on the 'NCPF Events' page of this site.
Further thanks are due to Beamish Museum for their willing and friendly co-operation, and also their generous free provision facilities that enabled us to put on the event.
Details of times and dates for a similar event at Beamish next year will be published as soon as possible.
