Print Club Championship Report

11th March 2012

Best Print: ‘Kingfisher Landing with Prey’ by Kevin Elsby of Norfolk PG
What a difference a month can make weather-wise. There was beautiful warm, sunny conditions for this year’s Print Club Championship held for the first time at the Fulbourn Centre, Fulbourn near Cambridge.  Members were able to sit outside for their tea/coffee and lunch and when inside they were treated to wonderful print images from across the Federation.

PDI Club Championship Report

12th February 2012

Best PDI: 'Ocean scene' by Malcolm Bumstead of Beyond Group

EAF members awoke to snow and ice on 12th February but that did not deter them from coming from all parts of East Anglia to the Latton Bush Centre, Harlow to see this year's PDI Championship.
There were 38 participating clubs – we saw 570 images in Round One and 100 images in Round Two. The three judges, Colin Harrison, Graham Hodgkiss and David E Gibbins had the job of scoring the images during the day. The images were varied and imaginative with some excellent work from the clubs. If you didn’t come, you missed a treat.
Whilst there was no cafeteria available the new coffee shop was an excellent place to go for a drink and a snack and had a variety of seating which helped to create an impression.

PAGB Club Print Championships 2011

Great news! Congratulations to Cambridge CC and Beyond Group who both got into the top five of the PAGB Championships at Connah’s Quay on 22nd October 2011.  Cambridge CC came 4th and Beyond Group 5th.  That is indeed something to celebrate – it is the first time the EAF has had two clubs so highly placed in that Championship.  The marking was so tight that the final positions all depended on the last set of prints to be marked.  I know the members of those club’s will be on cloud nine for some time!

Photography in Public

... and its relation to the Terrorism Act 2000

The Metropolitan Police have published an article on this subject on their website at

It states inter alia (a) Members of the public and the media do not need a permit to film or photograph in public places and police have no power to stop them filming or photographing incidents or police personnel, and (b) Officers do not have the power to delete digital images or destroy film at any point during a search.

It is recommend that you read it and carry a printed copy in your camera bag.


Plagiarism in Photography

Plagiarism continues to be a major issue in club photography whether this be deliberate or by inexperienced photographers not fully understanding what is ethical and permissable in exhibitions and competitions. Christine Widdall AFIAP DPAGB BPE3, President of the Lancashire and Cheshire Photographic Union (L&CPU) has produced an excellent article that provides a clarification of this tricky area. With Christine's permission, we have made this is available from the Downloadable Documents page on this web site. Please bring this to the attention of your competition secretary and perhaps even review your own club's competition rules to ensure that they make clear what is acceptable. Plagiarism is treated seriously by the EAF and all other federations and photographic organisations - the penalties are severe, and rightly so, and they may affect a club as well as the individual concerned so be warned.
