FIAP Update (MARCH 2021)

On 3rd March 2021 FIAP announced that the introduction of the changes to the FIAP Distinction Rules (published in previous special edition) are being postponed due to constitutional reasons and will not be introduced until they have been put before the next FIAP Congress, which not take place until 2022 at the earliest.

FIAP have also extended the withdrawal of print acceptance requirements for AFIAP and EFIAP applicants for 2022.

This means that the old rules will remain in place for 2022 at least.

In consequence of this there are the following issues that Exhibitors need to be aware of when planning to enter salons in the near future:-

  • Applicants for EFIAP can use their AFIAP results towards meeting the requirements for EFIAP.
  • Applicants for EFIAP Bronze will NOT be able to use any results towards their application that were gained before the date on their EFIAP certificate, which for IPF exhibitors is usually about mid-May each year.
  • For the time being there will be no EFIAP Diamond d4 or d5 distinctions.

FIAP are also conscious of the current Covid Pandemic and the resulting restrictions which have prevented our normal activities from continuing as we would have liked. For this reason they have also decided to temporarily reduce the fees for the FIAP Life Cards and FIAP Distinctions. These reductions will take effect from 30th June 2021 and will be in place until 30th June 2023.

Under these reductions the cost of a FIAP life card will be reduced from €50 to €25. And the FIAP charge for FIAP Distinctions will be reduced from €70 to €60.

FIAP will soon announce two more international photography competitions open to photographers from all over the world. The first will aim to promote UNESCO’s world cultural heritage. The second one will be reserved to Wildlife Photography. Both competitions will be under FIAP patronage and free of charge entry.

In addition to the acceptances and medals that will count for FIAP distinctions, the Best Author will be invited to the next FIAP Photo-meeting with all expenses paid (flight / transport and accommodation costs).
