I hope to finish in December a CD for the Recorded Lecture Service showing a large range of images in the passing range for CPAGB and DPAGB.
These will be incorporated into a PTE show to make it more difficult for anyone to copy them and use them illegaly.
Following suggestions from the SPA and L&CPU I can offer the APM images to Federations as plain images without music which you can use for Awards Workshops, etc., with the ability to pick the ones you want and “freeze” them to discuss their merits.
You are expected, of course, to treat these with respect, not allowing others to copy them and most certainly not making them available to clubs or individuals. They should only be used at Federation events or, securely, by appointed mentors. Who might be interested?
On a different subject the e-news articles about “lesser known” photographers have proved popular but few of you have taken up the invitation to nominate a couple. Would you like to do that or should I just appeal directly through e-news?
Tony Riley at SPA has reminded me that we discussed the possibility of loaning print sets for APM workshops in Federations. I am very happy to arrange this. At your expense (carrier) of course and we may need to fit around Adjudications.
I didn’t explain this offer very well previously which has led to a couple of requests I cannot meet. What I am offering, following a request from Tony Riley, is a box (or 2/3 boxes) of prints in the passing range, for C, D & M as required, available on request.
I don’t have any complete panels of prints, only a single print from each passing entrant. I am also not proposing to issue these on a “permanent” basis as they form the PAGB APM Archive and also because they need to be updated and refreshed regularly. I would suggest that Federations, for mentoring and workshops, should also seek to obtain complete panels of work from local successful, and even unsuccessful, applicants but again you should refresh these every year.
(I can seldom bring them to London as I fly or come by train but I come by car to all the other events – Print & PDI Championships, APM, etc. I can also ship them at Federation expense.) ROD
