FIAP Awards And International Exhibitions
 
 

Over the years, I have entered a few photographic competitions and exhibitions, I am not someone who enters lots of competitions each year, but along with a few friends, I do enter some competitions.  This page is to showcase some of the images that have done well for me over the years.

It is always a great feeling when an image gets accepted into an exhibition.  On the odd occasion where I have been fortunate enough to win an award, medal or prize.

 
 

 
FIAP Photographic Exhibitions
 

A recent count up has shown that I have had entered around 80 external exhibitions, that were affiliated to the FIAP  international salons which are held in many different countries.  Of these images, I am really pleased to have had over 400 images accepted into these International exhibitions.

The requirement to hold the "AFIAP" qualification is to achieve an acceptance of 40 images (of which 4 have to be prints) into a minimum of 15 different exhibitions in 8 or more countries.  The minimum number of separate images is 15.  I have met all of the minimum requirements, and have registered to hold the AFIAP registration.  I was awarded my AFIAP in June 2016.

The next level is the EFIAP which follows a simular format, but requires 250 international acceptances.  As of November 2016, I have just over 400 acceptances and have met all the qualification criteria for the EFIAP.   As the EFIAP is only awarded once per year, I am in the process of submitting my EFIAP application and am hopeful it will be approved by June 2017.

 
 

 
The number of images that I have had accepted into FIAP affiliated exhibitions is over 400, and of these, i am fortunate to have had fourteen images that have been awarded either a medal, commended, or ribbons, these are shown below.
