83rd Scottish Salon of Photography at Stirling Smith

The Scottish Photographic Federation was founded in 1903 by a consortium of clubs with the aim
'to enhance the progress of the new photographic process in Scotland'.
The first meeting was held in January 1903, and an Executive Committee was formed to run the new organisation on behalf of all the clubs. The first official meeting under the name of 'Scottish Photographic Federation' was held in Perth in March 1903, making it the second oldest Federation in the UK.

The Scottish Photographic Federation (SPF) is affiliated to The Photographic Alliance of Great Britain, comprising 10 English, 2 Welsh, 1 Irish in addition to the Scottish federation. The SPF is also directly affiliated to the Federation Internationale de l'art Photographique.

The Federation is made up of 87 member clubs covering the Highlands to the Borders. The objectives are to promote co-operation between, and organise activities for the mutual benefit of affiliated societies, as well as promote the general advancement of photography.

The SPF produces an annual directory of member clubs and contacts, and organises events such as technical workshops, lectures, the annual Salon and other annual competitions.

The SPF has an archive, including original prints by past and present prominent Scottish photographers, cared for by a custodian.
