The East Anglian Federation (EAF) of Photographic Societies was founded in 1910 and has thus been in existence for over 100 years. The EAF is a constituent founder Member of the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB), which is the parent organisation for camera clubs and photographic societies throughout the UK. Having approximately 120 member clubs and societies with in excess of 4500 individual members, the EAF is now the largest federation in the PAGB covering the area of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk, Suffolk and that part of Hertfordshire which lies to the east of the M1 motorway.

Awards for Photographic Merit

April Adjudication, Chorley, Lancashire, 21st/22nd April 2018


Last weekend was the April Adjudication for APMs hosted by the L&CPU in Chorley, a very well-organised and enjoyable weekend. Good pass rate in the Credit, but disappointing in the Distinctions. However, the Masters really made up for it with many stunning images and 5 new Masters.  We had only 11 applications spread over the C and D, 10 of them successful, so the names of the successful applicants as are follows and they can now add the respective letters after their names:

Credit Prints:  Patrick Ringham LRPS, CPAGB from March CC, Christine Frost CPAGB and Graham Frost CPAGB, both from Wayland & PC, David Portwain ARPS, CPAGB from Benfleet CC.

Credit PDIs:  Richard Coles LRPS, CPAGB from St.Ives PC, Francesca Shearcroft CPAGB, BPE1* and Diana Graham CPAGB, both from Wayland & DPC.

Distinction Prints:  Julie Mullings DPAGB from Muswell Hill PS and Cheryl Wilkes ARPS, DPAGB from Colchester PS.

Distinction PDIs:  Keith Mountford DPAGB, BPE3* FROM Wayland & DPC.

Wayland did very well with all five of their applications being successful.

We offer our sincere congratulations to them all.


The next main adjudication will take place in Pontefract hosted by the YPU.

I have had several requests about an Advisory Day, so we are running a low key event on Sunday 15th July at The Messing Village Hall, details will follow.
