After many months of 'they're on - they're off'', at last then APM team were able to catch up on the last 18 months of delays. The event was hosted by Smethwick PS over the weekend 26th/27th June and was for Prints only. For the team and the individuals who have been waiting it has been a very frustrating and nail-biting time. Sadly, it had to be a 'closed' event again and at this point we should applaud and thank the PAGB/APM team, the judges and the members of Smethwick Photographic Society who worked extremely hard, adhering to the Covid rules.
All applicants have received their individual results and, hopefully, they will receive their badges next week. It is hoped that the certificates will be with me before the opening of the EAF Exhibition on Saturday 14th August, when they will be presented.
Our congratulations go to all the successful applicants, as below:
