Salons, Exhibitions and Circuits


Images submitted are judged to standards set by whomever they have received patronage from and a week or two later, the results for the salon are published. Photos that have won awards, commendations or honourable mentions are then sent certificates, small trophies/medals and in rare cases a salon may offer cash prizes. The rest of the images are either accepted or declined and each photographer is given a report card showing how well they did.

The notion of an acceptance is an important one as the goal of most photographers entering a salon is to earn acceptances. This means your photograph is officially recorded as meeting a minimum standard by the salon judges and they want to include it in that year's suite of exhibited images. The letters after photographer's names come from and indicate how "successful" someone has been in salons over time.

Workshop / Demonstration Day with Paul Gallagher

On this one day workshop, PAUL GALLAGHER will cover aspects of post processing and image editing using Adobe Camera RAW, Lightroom and

Photoshop. You will learn important considerations you need to make throughout your digital work flow, to arrive at a superb image file ready to print or publish.
Digital files of support notes will be available afterwards to those who attend the day, which will save the problem of trying to take notes and then missing the next vital step, hint or tip!
REFRESHMENTS - morning coffee/tea with biscuits and afternoon tea/coffee with cake will be

provided. A “Social Club” adjoins the Hall and you will be able to get “refreshments” there at

Lunchtime including drinks, food, sandwiches and soup. Hot meals may also be pre-ordered

before the day, or you can of course bring a packed Lunch and drink.

APPLICATIONS may be made individually on this application form and handed to Steve Robinson together with a cheque made payable to the EAF.

Please note tickets will not be available on the door.
