Digital Artists & Photography Associates (DAPA) Group

Award Winning Exhibition & Distinction group, This is a top flight group, a specialist group for members wishing to take their photography to the next level. By this we mean exhibiting work at both National and International level, in doing so you will be competing for a place along side some of the best amateur photographers in the world. Therefore, the aim of this group is to work together as a team, in order to push the limits of our photography to the standards required for FIAP, PAGB and BPE distinctions.

I have just joined this group to try and give myself a boost and ensure I chase down these exhibition entries. I'm sure that joining a new group will give me the added incentive to remember the deadlines for submission ;-)
