NDPS UK Salon 2017 – Important Notice

We have had to postpone our Selection Weekend for the Salon.  One of our Selectors, Jan Cawley, was taken ill in the early hours of Saturday.  We wish Jan a speedy recovery and her partner and fellow Selector Ed all the best.

We will organise a new weekend for the selection and will keep you informed.  All entrants will be notified by email.

Presentation Evening 2014-15

Friday 12th June 2015 was the Presentation Evening everybody had been looking forward to (well at least NDPS Members).  The venue was The Cross Keys Hotel in Neath, and the venue and the menu pleased everybody.  There were a few surprises (not to me) in the Trophy list and a few not so surprised.  Roy Thomas FWPF (Hon) as the current President of the PAGB was on hand to award the trophies (and the oxygen to some) with his usual eloquence.  Below is a link to the Awards and Final Scores for the Photographer of the Year.

As the outgoing Competition Sec. this was my final duty and I now hand over the reigns to Denice Evans.  Thanks to you all.
