PAGB Awards for Photographic Merit:
Welcome to the awards section of the KCPA website, where you will find information on how to go about applying for a PAGB distinction.
As a follow up to the KCPA’s successful PAGB led APM Advisory day that took place on May 14 2017 @ Ditton community centre, I would like to bring you more information regarding future assessment dates –
26/27 May (Sat/Sun) Awards for Photographic Merit (A/V)
24/25 November (Sat/Sun) Awards for Photographic Merit Hosted by YPU
The hosting federations will have more details in due course on their own website, but don’t forget you need to be booked well in advance,often a year ahead, as these events are popular.
The first step is to complete the KCPA-APM-APPLICATION-FORM and ask your club Chair or Secretary to complete their section for the form, complete your section and return to our KCPA awards officer, Gary Carter CPAGB with a SAE. He will then send out the main form to you so you can apply for the PAGB distinction.
Full quailifying periods are as follows :
CPAGB 2 years
DPAGB 3 years
MPAGB 5 years plus held DPAGb for 11 months.
Further information on PAGB Distinctions can be found here
