SAPF Judges

SAPF provides a pool of judges who through volunteering their time and expertise, have made themselves available for club competition judging.

The SAPF Judging Coordinator is Keith Seidel AFIAP, FAPS, SSAPS.

Keith maintains and updates the List of judges which is made available to club secretaries.  Any queries regarding this list will be handled by Keith and not through the SAPF Secretary.

Keith’s contact details:

Phone: 8381 4249


Accredited judging courses are held periodically when the need arises and interested members are asked to contact Keith with their expressions of interest.  When a course is being planned, notice will be sent out by the SAPF secretary as well as a post placed on the SAPF website.

In order to maintain a high standard of judging, clubs must fill out and return the Judging Feedback forms provided, following any competition night where a SAPF judge is used.

Judging Guidelines

To provide a clear and uncomplicated service in respect of acquiring judges for club competition, a list of guidelines has been prepared for the benefit of both clubs and judges.

Keith has also written an article on Judging Photographs for Exhibitions/Competitions, which is highly recommended reading for clubs and judges alike.
