SPF Placings Gallery

This page shows works by PPS members that were highly-placed in ‘external’ competitions hosted by the Scottish Photograhic Federation between 2016 and the present day (Feb 2024).

Here, we show the images, with some provisos:

  • The images shown don’t represent the entire canon of members’ works placed in SPF competitions, some of which were prints; they are necessarily limited to those held digitally on our website
  • Placings (1st, 2nd etc) where shown relate to how these images placed in one of our own competitions, not in the SPF events
  • This page doesn’t normally specify the particular year in which the image was placed by the SPF

For details of how PPS takes part in these competitions, see our External Competitions page.
