Distinctions Advisory: 

Advise on potential RPS distinction panels is available throughout the day from current RPS assessors and is available for all levels; LRPS, ARPS and FRPS.  You do not need to prebook to speak to an advisor.

Trade Stands:

We are also delighted to welcome Barker Photographic and PermaJet to this event.  Paddy and his team have a wealth of knowledge on all types of camera equipment so take the opportunity to have a chat. PermaJet will be supplying paper samples for Michael’s print talk so you can see in real time how paper choice affects your final print.

**Please note that the region is run on a voluntary basis and we appreciate your patience as we get the events organised*
