Membership to DAPA is divided into two distinct groups, our Award Winning Exhibition & Distinction Group and our Flickr™ Group.
Joining our Exhibition & Distinction Group
Please read, in full, before registering for group membership.
The DAPA “Exhibition” Group was set up in November 2007, for members who had expressed the wish to further their photographic experience outside of Flickr™.
In January 2008 the group was accepted as a member of the Midland Counties Photographic Federation, with affiliation to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain, the first, so called “virtual” camera club to do so.
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.
As a group member you will be subject to a one off joining fee of £20.00, plus a membership subscription 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, you must declare them at the time of joining and state which federation shall have your support in the event of any inter-federation competitions. If it’s your intention to supporting another federation, other than the MCPF, that’s fine, but we would fully expect you to support DAPA Group in all other events, competitions and exhibitions.
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.
