To allow people the opportunity to submit images which fit the Themes required for FIAP biennials, without compromising their choice of image submissions in the “Monochrome print” “Colour Print” & “Projected Image” categories, 3 theme specific categories have been added.
Coastal Ireland (Colour Prints only)
Irish Environmental Portraiture (Monochrome Prints only)
People (Digital Projected Images only)
Example: A Photographer has some very strong images which would fit the “Coastal Ireland” theme, but really wants to submit a set of abstract, urban architecture, and interior/still life images in the 3 open categories.
Under the new system, the photographer can enter those images as desired, but can enter 2 additional images in the “Coastal Ireland” colour print Theme section.
Colour Print: Max 3 Images
Monochrome Print: Max 3 images
Projected Image: Max 3 Images
Coastal Ireland (Colour Print) Max 2 Images
Irish Environmental Portraiture (Monochrome Print) Max 2 images
People (Digital Projected Images only) Max 2 Images
Images will be selected from both Open and Theme sections in the PPI competition for inclusion in the IPF entries for FIAP biennials and other international competitions. so long as they comply with the themes. Awards for each category will only be made for images submitted into that category.
Eg: An image fitting the “Coastal Ireland” theme in the open colour print section may be selected for inclusion in the IPF entry into the relevant FIAP biennial, and is eligible to receive an award within the “Colour Print” category, but will not be eligible for awards within the “Coastal Ireland” category, as this is a separate competition section.
