Judging Workshop 15th February 2015

SCPF is always looking for new judges to come into the club community. Competition is still a staple of the club programme and judging takes up more discussion time than just about any other topic in club photography. Since 2012 we have been looking at how to improve our judging and the way we train new judges.

Are you a photographer who would like to give something of your expertise back?

We are running another Level 1 training day on 15th February 2015 at Littleton, near Winchester. It is the first step on the road to becoming an accredited judge. This workshop is a full day event led by judges who are all SCPF Level 3 or PAGB listed.

You will have the opportunity to:

[fancy_list style=”arrow_list”]

  • Learn the Core Principles
  • Practise in a Safe Environment
  • Understand the key elements of an appraisal
  • Become aware of speaking and body language
  • Practise the differences between judging prints and PDIs
  • Discuss marking
  • Look at some specialist disciplines, such as nature


Please note, this workshop is practical and interactive. Whilst there are no obligations afterwards, it is aimed at photographers who are looking to judge on the club circuit in our region. If you are looking to understand more about how judging works, we are able to arrange overview sessions for your club or for groups who are interested.

There are twelve places available. Please send the booking form to the address indicated by January 11th. More detail about timing and programme will be issued then.

Meanwhile please do get in touch if there is anything you would like to know.

Best regards
