The Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) The umbrella organisation that provides benefits and co-ordinates specific events for the majority of photographic clubs and societies in England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland. It does this through 15 regional organisations known as federations. These events and benefits apply variously to individual photographers, to societies and clubs, and to the federations themselves.
The Lancashire and Cheshire Photographic Union (L&CPU) We are members of the L&CPU and through them, the PAGB. It arranges various competitions and events each year. Individual membership of the PAGB is not permitted and so the L&CPU forms a link to it which, amongst other things, provides insurance for club members.
The Inter Club Photographic Alliance (ICPA) We are also members of this local group of camera clubs from the south east Lancashire area. It organises various competitions each year.
