MENTORING

Ware Photographic Society believe it would be helpful for new associates to gain from the experience of other members.  To this end, if you would like a ‘Mentor’ to whom you can turn to for advice or help with any photographic problems, please feel free to discuss this with any Committee Member.

 
General Announcements:
 
Ware DPS have decided to align with many other Clubs and formally bring a Rule regarding Plagiarism into effect
 

Plagiarism


 

  • ALL images entered to WDPS competitions MUST be the work of the author.

  • Composite images are permitted provided all component images meet this requirement. Images from any other source including, but not limited to, royalty free image banks and clipart are not permitted.

All alleged incidents of plagiarism will be investigated by the full committee and censure if appropriate dictated by them.

Any member accused of plagiarism will be entitled to meet with the committee and present their case prior to any decision being taken.

Censure can include a range of actions, up to and including expulsion from WDPS under a lifetime ban and notification to both the EAF and the PAGB.

Expulsion will NOT result in the return of any unused portion of subscription or monies pre-paid for club trips/events.

There will be NO right of appeal to censure.

Guidance

Responses to requests for clarification will be based on Plagiarism in Photography – an interpretation by Christine Widdall AFIAP DPAGB BPE3. (http://christinewiddall.co.uk/musings/plagiarism-photography/) which has also been published on the PAGB website.
