The Competition will comprise of 3 parts, Colour Prints, Monochrome Prints and Projected Images. Each parts will require 10 images.


I hope that members of WPF Clubs will escort visitors on Friday afternoon and evening, Saturday and Sunday mornings. South Wales is a very attractive area to visit, especially the coastline…..the Heritage Coast between Ogmore by Sea and Penarth, and the outstanding Gower peninsular. Cardiff and Swansea are within easy travelling distance and there are a number of interesting country houses and historic sites to visit. The PAGB Inter Federation print and projected images exhibition will be shown in Barry, which is about 20 miles from Porthcawl, and will be well worth a visit. Please note, this exhibition will not be open on Sunday. I will retain a copy of the exhibition catalogue for all our visitors.

On Saturday evening, we will be hosting a dinner at the Glamorgan Holiday Hotel. There will be a 3 course dinner with a choice of menu, and entertainment by the Morlais Male Choir. The cost of this will be £15 per head. Reservations and menu will have to be made in advance, and more details will follow.

Please confirm your intention to enter as soon as possible, and indicate how many of your supporters are likely to attend in person. Tickets for the dinner are limited to 50 guests, and priority will be given to visitors. Please let me know if you wish to attend the dinner by Saturday 17th September, after which tickets will be offered to members of the WPF.

We in the WPF are eagerly looking forward to hosting this competition, If you have any queries, please contact me. I will be very happy to help.
