WAPF invite affiliated club members to participate in competitions and exhibitions which are held at various intervals across each year.  Some competitions are open to individual members, such as ClickWest and In My View, others may be Club Competitions, such as PrintWest.

Participating in competitions and attending the events where the images are displayed allows members to see the very best images members are creating.  It is also an opportunity to see trends and advances in technique and product associated with the creation of photography as an art form.
