Synopsis:
As photographers we are always trying to challenge ourselves and improve our skills.

Applying for a recognised accreditation can take time, skill and persistence. The Fotospeed Academy is delighted to work with ‘The Dragon’ herself Margaret Salisbury, to help support and advise you on putting together your own panel.

With Over 40 years experience and a number of accreditations herself, we can’t think of any one better equipped to lead this workshop.

Margaret will display examples of successful and also unsuccessful panels, to highlight their strengths and weaknesses. She will offer guidance to participants looking for Distinctions or running Open/International Exhibitions, and use her own experience to encourage and assist you. She will also explain the up to date Criteria for different associations including:

*Exhibitions. Federation, Open and International
*Distinctions with:- RPS (Royal Photographic Society) DPS (Disabled Photographers Society) WPF (Welsh Photographic Society), PAGB (Photographic Alliance Great Britain),
*FIAP (International Federation Photographic Art), IPF (Irish Photographic Federation),
*BPA (British Photo Awards), SWPP (“The Societies”) John Herlinger from The Fine Art Print room will also be on hand to share his knowledge on the best ways to present your work for panel. With years of experience printing panels for hopeful applicants, there is no one better to explain the importance of a well printed and mounted fine art print, and how best to display your photography. Finally, you will be asked to bring your own work with you which will be displayed and reviewed by other member’s in the class. This is a brilliant opportunity to gain feedback from your peers.

What will I learn?
Margaret will display examples of successful panels to highlight their strengths and weaknesses. She will offer guidance to participants looking for Distinctions or for Awards and Acceptances, in Federation, and also Open and International Exhibitions, enabling photographers to apply for Distinctions with the “Points system” using her own experience to encourage and assist you. She will also explain the up to date Criteria for different Associations including:

RPS (Royal Photographic Society) DPS (Disabled Photographers Society) WPF (Welsh Photographic Society), PAGB (Photographic Alliance Great Britain), BPE* (British Photographic Exhibition Stars) *FIAP (International Federation Photographic Art), IPF (Irish Photographic Federation),*BPA (British Photo Awards), SWPP (“The Societies”) (*Exhibitions, Federation, Open and International).

Members will be given the opportunity to “Select/Judge” images themselves to gain an insight into the judging and marking systems. This will give you an idea of what may be successful and the marks which could be awarded for their own and other photographers images.

John Herlinger from The Fine Art Print Room will also be presenting his knowledge, on the best ways to present your work for panel, whether printing your own images or having them printed. With years of experience printing panels for hopeful applicants, there is no one better to explain the importance of a well printed and mounted fine art print and how best to display your photography.

What will I need to bring?
You will be asked to bring your own work with you which will be displayed, assessed by Margaret and reviewed by other member’s in the class. This is a brilliant opportunity to gain feedback from your peers to be inspired and encouraged to achieve your own personal aim. You may also wish to bring a paper and pen to take down notes. Lunch is not included on this workshop.
