This Special Interest Group will focus on issues relating to standards, training and employment for those working in archaeological illustration and survey. This group was formerly called the Illustration and Survey special interest group.
The group have finalised a new specialist matrix to assist the corporate validation process for Illustrators. To request a copy please email membership [at] archaeologists.net.
Membership of the Group is open to anybody working in the various disciplines producing archaeological graphics in the broadest sense. CIfA members may join the group for free, while non-members are asked to pay a £10.00 fee to cover mailing costs. Please contact the CIfA office at firstname.lastname@example.org
The GAG AGM was held at the CIfA conference on Thursday 21 April at 10.30am in Room 528 in the Ken Edwards Building.
There are vacancies for Chair, Secretary and three Ordinary committee members. If you are interested in joining the committee please complete a nomination form.
The committee would like some new members in order to progress their business plan and to ensure the group continues.
If you would like to discuss what the positions entail please contact lianne.birney [at] archaeologists.net
We are pleased to announce the launch of the re-branded GAG website that can be found at this address www.gag-cifa.org/
As you can see, the site has been given a more contemporary look and feel. Most importantly, the gallery allows for the display of larger images.
If you are interested in displaying your own images within the gallery we would like to receive them, but you must be a MCIfA grade member. Please email contact [at] gag-cifa.org with a note of interest and we will send you the requirements.
You will then be invited to a link on Dropbox, where you may upload up to 12 gallery images and a text document about yourself.
We look forward to receiving your notes of interest!
If you would like to display your images, but are not MCIfA grade, please do consider applying to upgrade. Further information about this can be found at www.archaeologists.net/join/individual

We have recently introduced specialist competence matrices, which have been compiled by our CIfA special interest groups and are tailored to their specific areas. These are to assist applicants and the Validation committee to see where you demonstrate the grade applied for.
