The Photographic Alliance
Last week Otley Camera Club had the pleasure of Andrea Hargreaves' company.
Andrea joined us in her capacity of Yorkshire Photographic Union Awards Officer & Mentoring Co-ordinator. Andrea broke her talk down into two parts; the first section was all about the different competitions and accreditations which you can you can enter yourself, or through the YPU. The second half was an interesting, interactive discussion about the standards needed to get the CPAGB, DPAGB and MPAGB accreditations with lots of example panel submissions to look at and discuss.
As a club we are keen to progress and Andrea was full of enthusiasm and ideas to help us achieve our goals. We now need to go away and do our home work - realistically assessing our current standard and looking at what we can do to improve. The PAGB and Andrea in her role as YPU Awards Officer & Mentoring Co-ordinator will support us on this journey.
Hopefully over the next couple of years more and more of our members will begin to enter the YPU Annual Exhibition and Salons, and will gain lots of accreditations!
