Photographic Alliance Events

Event Information:

Full information about all events, including the rules, definitions and the results and galleries for each occasion, is available via the PAGB web site, and via announcements in PAGB e-news. Information on this page about Photographer and Image eligibility for each event are summarised from the full rules, but are not a complete description.

Important: Federations and Clubs are the Entrants for the various events (except masters of print), but they use the work of their Photographers. In order to meet the eligibility requirements for both Photographers and Images, all Entrants must maintain adequate records, and must make full enquiry from Photographers before making submissions. In turn, Photographers must keep records of which of their Images has been submitted, and to which events and by which Entrant, so that enquiries from Entrants can be answered accurately. This is particularly important where a Photographer is or has been a member of multiple Clubs. Failing the eligibility criteria for an event risks the reputation of both the Entrant and the Photographer. See Eligibility Advice
