Welcome to the awards section of the KCPA website, where you will find information on how to go about applying for a PAGB distinction.

AV Adjudication will take place on Sunday 19th May – Wilmslow
NOVEMBER 2019 ADJUDICATION – WATFORD
UPDATE 28th Nov Spaces however fill very fast and entrants need to apply sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment!
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 Acting KCPA awards officer, Alan Cork 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
