Photographic Alliance Awards
Awards are available to Clubs members who have supported their Club for the requisite time, and who then pass an assessment. The CACC Awards Officer is Gillian Morgan. Contact: gcmorgan (at) pobroadband.co.uk
Information is available in the following documents:
The levels are:
Credit (CPAGB); Distinction (DPAGB); and Master (MPAGB)
Work for assessment may be submitted as:
Still Images: These can be Prints or Projected but not a mix. You will upload your entry to the PAGB on-line system, using digital file copies of your Prints or digital files for Projected. Prints are sent in advance or may be delivered to the assessment session.
Applying / Attending:
The assessment sessions move around the country, and you may apply for any session. You are also welcome to attend and observe one of the assessment days. Tickets are on sale from the local host organiser shortly before each event.
Still Images: Assessment sessions are held twice each year. The target is that nobody should wait for more than a year. There may be additional catch-up sessions to clear any backlog of applications.
Audio Visual: Assessment sessions are held depending on demand. There was a session in 2018. Anyone interested should apply as soon as possible.
June 2019: The Committee announces that Kathy Chantler ARPS (Imagez CC) has been co-opted to join the Committee.
PAGB Awards Weekend
CACC is hosting the Awards on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th November in Watford. More information HERE
Witney PG has reported that it successfully uses ‘membermojo’ to manage its club membership. The system can manage subscriptions and allows members to update their own profile. Note that there are many other membership management systems available and CACC does not endorse any particular product.
Events in 2020
Championship Day will be on Sunday March 22nd at Amersham. Rosebowl Day will be on Sunday April 19th at Amersham.
For CACC events in 2019/2020, the CACC Committee has removed the rule requiring all images to be no more than 2 years old. The Committee has added a rule that none of the images in the Projected Championship may have been shown on the same day in the Print Championship. This is in response to audience feedback to reduce the number of replicate images on the day.
