It’s not too late to register for one of the Judge Training Courses coming up. The Taupo one is being held on the weekend of 9th – 10th July, and the Auckland one is in Orewa on the 18th -19th of June. There are two South Island workshops a bit later in the year.
Over the two day course, you will gain an insight into what is involved in the judging process; that is, how to view images, critique and communicate the results to the photographer. This will also develop your photography skills noticeable, so it’s not just judging you’ll be learning.
You will also learn more about how to become an accredited judge. It is not mandatory that you progress to the formal training to become an accredited judge – but we would love it if you did!
