FIAP NEWS- October 2020

FIAP Distinctions Update

For a number of years the IPF – as allowed for under the FIAP Distinction Regulations – have had a number of local requirements for those applying for AFIAP.
It was decided at the IPF Council meeting on 17th October 2020 that these will be suspended with immediate effect.

The impact of this is that those applying for AFIAP in the upcoming application process will only have to adhere to the FIAP requirements. There are no changes for those applying for EFIAP and the EFIAP levels and also for MFIAP.
A reminder that the schedule for this year is that submissions will open on 1st November 2020 and will close on 28th February 2021.

You should initially register on the IPF website and pay the relevant fee there.
If you are applying for the first distinction – AFIAP – then you also have to register with FIAP and apply for a FIAP Life Card. There is a separate fee for this. You can make this application via the FIAP online platform at www.myfiap.net
There is a link at the bottom of the screen called “Create new Photographer profile”. Click on this – and then look at the video by clicking on the link in the Red Banner with the words “Video tutorial on how to order the FIAP card”.
All the information you need is on the IPF website under the FIAP pages.
All applicants should also let the FIAP Liaison Officer – Paul Stanley – know of your intention to apply. You can contact him via the Contact page on the IPF website.

FIAP Distinctions Presentation Ceremony

There were 16 people who applied for and were successful in obtaining FIAP distinctions in 2020. Due to the current restrictions relating to Covid-19, we have not been able to have our traditional Presentation Ceremony with the accompanying exhibition of prints.
The certificates and pins for all 16 have now been posted to them and all have been invited to an online Presentation Ceremony which will take place on Saturday 31st October 2020.
The IPF President and the FIAP President will also be present to honour the recipients.

The arrangements and entry information are still being finalised but will be sent to FIAP Liaison Officers when the details have been finalised.
