If you are looking for a more hands-on experience without having to fight the crowds, the Superclasses are for you. Limited to just 15 delegates these informative and educational workshops will enhance your Convention experience.

Location Seminars
We have spent many months searching for supreme locations, which provide not only the perfect backdrops, but a range of challenging photographic circumstances. The aim of the location shots is to provide small groups with intensive hands-on learning guided by a leading craftsman.

Business School
Our highly-focused power-packed business school has been designed to bring you successful professional photographers who have taken their business to the next level. They will share with you their thoughts and secrets of their business.

20x16” Print Competition
Enter the 20x16” Print Competition, judging takes place at the Convention, where delegates are invited to watch the judging process free of charge. Merited images will be displayed for visitors to view in the Convention Reception Area.

We are laying down the challenge to our valued members to gain Associateship or Fellowship accreditation for their work at the 2015 Convention. The judging process is held in public so photographers can watch the assessment process, this in itself is an invaluable learning process.

Awards Dinner
Join us on the glittering Awards Night and celebrate the success of photographers from around the world.

Welcome Party
Join us on this great social night to get your Convention experience off to a terrific start.
