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.

The WAPF has adopted a set of Core Rules that will apply to all WAPF competitions, each competition will generally have other rules specific to that competition

Twenty images are shortlisted as finalists.  Writers are invited to create a story in prose or poetry inspired by one of these images. The resultant body of work, being photographs with an accompanying story, are published in abook.
