The 39th Northern Counties International Salon of Photography 2018 did, as last year, consist of four PDI Sections, comprising Open Colour, Open Monochrome, Nature and Photo-Travel 

It is extremely pleasing to be able to note that last year's event was a success, with an excellent standard of entries in all four sections of the salon.

The Salon has been organised by the NCPF and its federated clubs for 39 years. For 27 years the Salon was open to Colour Slides only, and known as the "Northern Counties International Slide Exhibition".

In 2007, at the invitation of South Shields PS, we incorporated their Print salon into our Exhibition. Since then, Colour Slides had to be dropped in 2011 and  Projected Digital Images (Electronic Images) have become firmly established. After a ten year adventure with Prints, the salon returned to its roots in 2017 as a Projected Image Salon.

This year's Salon awarded FIAP, PSA, GPU and NCPF medals, and includes awards for specific subjects in most Sections. We also produce a full colour catalogue, which is sent free of charge to ALL entrants. 

There are also awards in each section, known as the Northumbria Trophies for the best entries by members of NCPF clubs, who also enjoy discounted entry fees.

All Acceptances and Awards (except the Northumbria Trophies, as they are not available to all entrants) in the Northern Counties Salons count towards Distinctions granted by FIAP, and UPI and towards Star Ratings and Distinctions granted by PSA.

We continue to provide an excellent Exhibition of accepted and awarded entries to every club in the NCPF and to neighbouring clubs and societies.

For full details of this year's Salon please use the menu tems listed in the left hand column of this web site.

To achieve this requires an enormous amount of work and commitment by a  band of willing volunteers, to whom our thanks are sincerely extended for their efforts.
