Shaping the new normal: adapt & flourish
Tuesday 14 December, 10.00am–4.30pm

It’s going to be a full and varied day. There will be inspirational keynotes from Dame Katherine Grainger DBE and our creative guru Tony Harmer, ‘lightning talks’ from ACPME members (who will be sharing best practice and innovative ideas implemented during the pandemic), and updates from our suppliers with engagement opportunities.

This is the ACPME showcase event. It will help your own personal development, enable you to learn from your peers, and keep you up-to-date with new products and services from our suppliers.

We hope to see you all there. Enjoy this edition of Despatch. Stay engaged with the #ACPMEFamily and keep up your amazing work.

We’ve added this SIG to our Vimeo account alongside previous virtual events. Watch on-demand to recap or catch up on anything you missed.

ACPME members, from across the UK, and overseas guests recently met to talk image banks and asset libraries.

Nic Delves-Broughton, University of Bath, showed his DAMS system (Fotoweb), before a discussion covering topics such as:

  • Quick and pain-free searching and location of images
  • Controlling different levels of access
  • Adding and protecting your copyright
  • Shareable lightboxes
  • Administration of model release forms
  • Hosting: onsite, offsite or cloud?

ACPME Annual Conference 2022
Sunday 5 June – Wednesday 8 June

While we’re looking forward to our virtual conference in December, there’s nothing quite like networking face-to-face.

After so long apart, we’re determined to make it the best ACPME conference. Planning is underfoot, but we need you to tell us what you want to discuss, learn about and experience. Please help us to deliver the event you want: email with any suggestions.
