The Western Counties Photographic Federation (WCPF) was formed in 1932 and is one of fifteen  Federations that are affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) and ultimately to the FIAP - "Fédération International de l'Art Photographique".


Currently over 100 clubs are in the Federation  from across Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset and South far East as Weymouth,  as far North as Stroud and across into Swindon in Wiltshire. 


The prime purpose of the WCPF is to encourage the art and practice of photography directly to members and clubs throughout its catchment area, supporting/liaising with other Federations and the PAGB, ensuring local views and interests feature in national debate.


The WCPF is run by an Executive Committee of volunteers (nominated and elected by club delegates), together with co-opted members.
