The International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP) is the UNESCO recognised body representing photographic art worldwide and to which the Irish Photographic Federation (IPF) is affiliated as a full member, representing Ireland.
Among it’s many activities FIAP awards internationally recognised distinctions that are already held by a number of members of IPF member clubs. Further specific information regarding FIAP Distinctions can be viewed on the IPF website, www.irishphoto.ie. These Distinctions are gained through a process of points accumulation based on image acceptance at specified international competitions, commonly referred to as “Salons”, that have formally been granted FIAP Patronage.
