At the recent Adjudication Day for PAGB Awards for Photographic Merit, three of our members gained success with their submissions. The event was hosted by the Midland Counties PF and was held at Bromsgrove over the weekend of Sat/Sun 20/21st April this year.
From Ryton & District CC, Keith Archer CPAGB, submitted a panel of 10 Prints and was awarded the PAGB's Credit Award (CPAGB). He was one of 36 entrants from around the country of which 31 were successful. The recognised standard for the Credit Award is ten photographs that are up to good class class club photography.

From over on the western side Alan Walker ARPS EFIAP DPAGB, from West Cumbria Photo Group, chose to go for the Distinction (DPAGB) award in Projected Digital Images. He chose right and he was granted DPAGB to replace his Credit award. To gain this award you need fifteen photographs that are to exhibition standard.

That is a rather nice scattering across the Federation area and bearing in mind the Adjudication was held in the Midlands a credit to the Federation and its members. The standard required for these awards demands a great deal of effort on the part of applicants and all three are to be congratulated for their success.
