"Northern Counties Annual Presentation of Awards"
On Sunday 10th November, 2013 we held our "Annual Presentation of Awards Day", sponsored this year for the first time by Permajet, at the Novotel Hotel, at Newcastle.
This was a free event open to all members with a good attendance of 65. Those present were there to mark and celebrate both individual and Club successes in this years’ NCPF Annual Competitions, the Beamish Trophy and the 34th NCPF International Salon.
The event also marked the Federations’ recent success in the Nature section of the PAGB Inter-federation PDI Championships by having the PAGB Nature Trophy on display and by showing a sequence of the successful images along with the author’s name and Club. The awards were presented to the winners by the NCPF President, Pax Garabedian, EFIAP PPSA DPAGB, with the winning pictures being projected on to the screen at the time.
