The WAPJA aims primarily to provide a benefit to camera clubs in WA, and also any other organisations that require critical analysis of photographic art.

Clubs or other organisations will be able to get access to a list of photographers and/or artists who are known by the WAPJA to have either been photographic judges for many years, or who are in the training or development stages of improving their judging capabilities.

Individuals who are enthusiastic about photography as an art medium are given access to resources and other materials, as well as training courses and workshops, so that their communication of their critical analysis of images can be improved.

The WAPJA website facilitates the communication and liaison between judges and clubs (or organisations) and provides a conduit for feedback between the two parties to encourage further improvement in the judging service.
