Sadly, we have taken the decision to cancel this year's AV Competition in the light of the escalating Coronavirus outbreak. Our judges, Clive and Joan Rathband, have underlying health issues and have understandably chosen not to expose themselves to the risk of infection. They are currently judging the entries at home, and by the end of March will have selected the winners and made written comments on each sequence. Each entrant has been contacted and asked if the preferred option would be to postpone the event until next year, or run the competition as a virtual event. The overwhelming response was for the latter, so instead of running the competition live, on 4th April we will put all of the entries on our Dropbox account together with the list of winners and comments on each entry. A link to the Dropbox page will be posted then.

The Western Counties Photographic Federation (WCPF) was formed in 1932 and is one of fifteen  Federations that are affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) and ultimately to the FIAP - "Fédération International de l'Art Photographique".


Currently over 100 clubs are in the Federation  from across Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset and South far East as Weymouth,  as far North as Stroud and across into Swindon in Wiltshire. 


The prime purpose of the WCPF is to encourage the art and practice of photography directly to members and clubs throughout its catchment area, supporting/liaising with other Federations and the PAGB, ensuring local views and interests feature in national debate.


The WCPF is run by an Executive Committee of volunteers (nominated and elected by club delegates), together with co-opted members.
