The UK Picture Editors' Guild
The UK Picture Editors' Guild has been established 40 years and is formed by picture editors from the picture desks of the national press, regional newspapers, international press agencies and domestic photo agencies.
The founding members, Paddy Hicks of the Press Association, Stuart Boyd of The Scotsman and Peter Woodman of the Newcastle Chronicle, felt there was a need for people in the same profession to have a forum in which they could share their thoughts.
It was acknowledged that there were common issues that could often find common solutions and sharing the problems with others meant that they could often be solved.
The needs that created the Guild in the past are still with us in the present and likely to be with us in the future.
The Guild encourages and is a supporter of fine photography and its members are involved in judging competitions throughout the World.
The Guild welcomes new members.
