SCPF Judging Levels
Southern Counties Photographic Federation takes a pride in providing a body of volunteer judges for camera club competitions across our region and wider afield. The number of judges available has increased significantly since 2012 following a rethink of the training we offer. Our training rationale is that having attended a training course is very different from having acquired experience and practised in a real club environment. That is reflected in the three levels:
|1||Preliminary||Trained by SCPF or equivalent and gaining experience at club level||Club competitions|
|2||Panel B||Accredited after minimum 1 year's experience||Club and inter-club competitions|
|3||Panel A||Accredited after minimum 5 years' experience||Federation competitions, league matches, national and international exhibitions|
|4||Accredited by PAGB||PAGB, national and inernational competitions and exhibitions|
Booking Level 1 Judges
Clubs are encouraged to book new Level 1 judges so that they can gain experience. Please ensure that the level of competition is appropriate for new judges and that expectations are managed well. It will also be a requirement from 2015 that structured feedback is provided for all Level 1 judges for the benefit of their development.
For all enquiries about judges and judging, please contact our Judging Advisor – Ken Scott (firstname.lastname@example.org).
