Jen Fawkes – Creating portfolios
In 2017 the Photographic Society of America introduced a new category of honours with a focus on portfolios. In 2018 I achieved my Bronze portfolio distinction (BPSA) with a portfolio titled “Challenging Perceptions” and in 2019 achieved my Silver Portfolio Distinction (SPSA) with a portfolio titled “Once there were people’.
This presentation will discuss the process, rules, requirements and the images that were part of my application for portfolio distinctions.
Purpose: A photographic report
Helen Warnod – Educational partnerships
The sharing of professional expertise internationally leads to an amazing opportunity to experience educational, and cultural marvels, both in and behind the scenes, in Delhi and Northern India.
I chose to produce a photographic rather than a written report.

Dave Sumner – About Dave’s photography
Dave is a photography judge and he provides judging services via correspondence for clubs that are remote and find it hard to get judges out to their clubs.
Because he doesn’t physically visit the club in person, he provides the club with a slideshow of his work which they play on the night. Dave presents one of those slideshows.
