The Irish Photographic Federation awards distinctions on three levels – Licentiate, Associate and Fellow, in ascending order.
The Associateship is the second of these levels and requires a panel of fifteen images to be presented for assessment. The panel should sit together as a cohesive body of work and demonstrate the applicant’s individuality and sustained ability in photography. Successful applicants are entitled to use the letters AIPF after their name.
