The Welsh Photographic Federation: Welsh Salon Exhibition

06.05.2022 – 28.05.2022

The Welsh Photography Federation is an affiliation of about 50 camera clubs in the South Wales area. It is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB), Fédération Internationale de l’Art Photographique (FIAP), and the Photographic Society of America (PSA). It aims to promote and raise the standard of Welsh photography and to support its members in achieving photographic excellence.

The Welsh Photographic Alliance as it was initially known was renamed The Welsh Photographic Federation in 1951.  A motto was adopted, Heb Wawl, Heb Waith, which in translation means Without Light, Without Work. It was soon agreed that the Federation should join The Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB).

In 1994 the Federation initiated its own distinction for photographic merit, Associate of the Welsh Photographic Federation (AWPF) and the Honorary Fellowship of the Welsh Photographic Federation (Hon. FWPF), awarded in recognition of outstanding service to the Federation and its member societies.

The Welsh Salon of Photography Exhibition showcases a range of work from photography across South Wales. The pieces are split into three categories:  Monochrome Prints, Colour Prints, and PDIs. Awards will be chosen and presented by 3 judges per section, of which one is from outside the Federation.
