FIAP Award (FEDERATION INTERNATIONALE DE L’ART PHOTOGRAPHIQUE - The International Federation of Photographic Art)

 

I first achieved the criteria for the distinction: "Artist FIAP" (AFIAP). It is awarded to ‘photographic artists whose artistic qualities, technique and production of work have been acknowledged through their participation in international salons under FIAP Patronage’.  The candidate for this distinction must have taken part with success in at least 15 international salons under FIAP Patronage in at least 8 different countries.  

 

I went on to achieve "Excellence FIAP" (EFIAP), which is awarded to photographic artists who, ‘apart from having excellent techniques, have significant numbers of their works often accepted in many international salons under FIAP Patronage’.  The candidate must have taken part with success in at least 30 international salons under FIAP Patronage in at least 20 different countries and have obtained at least 250 acceptances with at least 50 different works in international salons under FIAP Patronage.

Accepted images can also be awarded Gold, Silver & Bronze medals, and 'Honourable Mention', 'Ribbon' and 'Chairman's/Judge's Choice' (not quite a medal but more than an 'acceptance'!)

Here are my most successful images:
