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 102 member clubs and societies with about 3500 individual members, the EAF is one of the largest federations 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. Following the closure of the Central Federation in 1989 a number of North and East London clubs were welcomed into the East Anglian Federation.

Photographic Alliance of Great Britain Awards for Photographic Merit Weekend
Saturday 27th – Sunday 28th April 2024.

The most recent adjudication took place over the weekend of Saturday and Sunday 27th/28th April 2024 at St Mary’s College, Basingstoke, hosted by the Southern Counties Photographic Federation. It was a well-run weekend, although the hall was a little on the cool side, but there was plenty of space.

There were 126 applications nationwide with 25 applicants from our Federation, many of whom attended, and those who were successful were able to collect their respective badges from the President Elect, David Gibbins, ARPS, EFIAP/b, BPE 5*, APAGB, who was deputising for PAGB President, Daphne Hanson.

Of our 25 applicants, 17 have been successful over four levels. Unfortunately, the certificates will not be available until late May, and by then most clubs will have closed for the summer recess so most of the certificates will have to be mailed.

We can now offer our congratulations to the following successful members.

The books are open for the November adjudication. It was due to be held in South Wales, but sadly they couldn’t find a suitable venue. However, the PAGB team have now found a suitable venue and will be running the weekend at The Winsford Academy, Grange Lane, Winsford, Cheshire, CW7 2BT. Further details will follow. To date we have 6 applications.

We will again be running our annual APM Advisory Day at Foxton on the 1st of September with the assistance of some of the PAGB APM team plus a couple of others. Publicity posters and entry forms are available on the Downloadable Documents Page. To date I have 19 applications. Should there not be enough from the EAF to cover costs, I will open it out to nearby Federations as interest has been shown by some of their members who live near the EAF.
