Some of you may or may not know that Fran stepped down from the Junior Team a few months ago due to other commitments. Thanks to Fran for her help over the years Smile

Now we could do with another highly respected photographer, or two, who's good at communicating with juniors to join Karen and James to run the junior section. The role is one that nurtures newly joining juniors, helping them find their way around the site and using the features, while giving Junior Awards to pictures that they think are outstanding. The team also look out for adults signed in accidentally as juniors and juniors who've not flagged up their status. Also answer junior questions and offer guidance etc.
Do we have any volunteers?

Thanks for the thanks, Pete Smile (Do I take it by inference that I'm a "highly respected photographer" then???? ) Wink

If I can add my tuppence-worth it's a fabulously rewarding job, and I looked on the Juniors as part of the family! If life wasn't so hectic, it's something that I would still be doing, they are a fabulous bunch!

Come on guys - it's great fun, and I can guarantee that they WILL surprise you! Smile

Go for it and ENJOY!!!

Thinking about it, but Karen and James already pretty much have the wildlife side of things covered......

I'm also not sure I can commit entirely with the way things are at home.....

Thanks for the offers Guys - much appreciated.
We've made a decision to accept PM CB's offer to take over the helm as Team Leader. CB has already bean team leader of the critique team so it made sense for him to land the new position which takes effect immediately. Once he's settled in he can decide whether the team wants to expand.

Thanks Pete. Encouragement of young photographers is something I feel strongly about. I was fortunate enough to be born into a family where, in particular my mother and several aunts and uncles were enthusiasts; so my photographic journey started very early indeed... and still continues, of course.

I look forward to working with Karen and James, and to helping to build upon all the good work the Junior Support Team has done to date. Smile
