DAPA Group membership is open to residents of the United Kingdom only.

In November, 2007 several group members  expressed the wish to further their photographic experience outside of Flickr and aim their sights higher by entering photographic exhibitions. In January 2008 the group successfully gained membership to the Midland Counties Photographic Federation (MCPF), which is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB), DAPA Group was the first, so called “virtual” camera club to do so. Our journey started here.

DAPA Group welcomes all UK photographers, beginners or advanced, who have an interest in entering photographic exhibitions and gaining photographic distinctions. Our current membership has a wealth of experience in both National and International competitions, who are only too willing to pass on their knowledge and experience to others.

As a group, we capture a wide variety of subject matter and styles. From landscape and natural history studies to portrait and figure work, from still life to abstract, and from documentary photography to travel.

To offset the cost of running our website and discussion forum you will be subject to a one time joining fee of £20.00, plus an annual membership subscription fee of £15.00. These fees are payable at the time of joining and your subscription renewable on the 30th November thereafter.

Upon receipt of your application you will be sent an invoice for your membership fee and subscription. If your invoice remains un-paid for a period of seven days after registration, we will take the decision that you are no longer interested in becoming a member and your name, along with your contact details, will be removed from our register and your membership to the group cancelled.

Dual Membership: There is nothing in the DAPA Group rule book that prevents photographers from being a member of another camera club, or indeed another photographic federation. However, if you do happen to belong to another club or another federation we would very much like you to declare them at the time of joining.

As a regular DAPA Group member you will have unlimited access to the groups discussion forum, including information relating to all BPE, PAGB and FIAP distinctions. Our forum offers a complete list of all BPE approved exhibitions as well as a comprehensive list of all UK International and many Overseas International exhibitions with FIAP and PSA patronage. We also offer a group mentoring system to aid and improve your exhibition success rate.
