"Congratulations to Northern Counties members"
As the year draws to a close and Christmas nears, it is perhaps apppropriate to congratulate members of Northern Counties clubs for achievements that have gone unmentioned earlier in the year.
Many of our members enter International Salons across the world and whilsit we have recognised all those who gained distinctions from the FIAP earlier in the year, there has been a steady stream of our members having their efforts recognised by the Photographic Society of America (PSA) during the past year. PSA makes awards for both for achievement in International Exhibtions and also for service to photography.
Associateship of PSA (APSA) is granted to members of PSA who have given prolonged service to their fellow members and have also a distinguished record of photographic achievement themselves. It therefore with great pleasure that we start our list with the name of:-
|APSA||Tony Potter ARPS EFIAP/g APSA MPSA DPAGB APAGB|
Tony is currently Secretary of the Federation and well known as chairman of the organising committees for both the Great British Small Prints Circuit and the Solway Salon. He also lists being a PAGB listed judge and a long term Judge for Northern Counties, as well being the creator and driving force behind the West Cumbria Photo Group among his many aspects of service to our hobby. Well done and well deserved Tony.
As already intimated PSA also grants distinctions to its members for achievements in International Salons that are recognised by them. Fuller details of these awards are contained in the relevant section of the "Knowledge Base" pages on this site. The following members of our federation are therefore to be congratulated for being recognised by PSA over the last year:-
