The Federation of European Professional Photographers’ board convened for the first time under its new President, Truls Løtvedt, on June 11, 2018 in Tampere, Finland. This meeting was then followed up by an online meeting a couple weeks afterwards.

New website

During these two meetings, the board decided to completely update the FEP website. The new website will be operational in the autumn; it wil be mobile friendly and it will have new features.

Event calendar 2019

The 2019 judging session will be organized in Bergen, Norway (June) and in Prague, Czech Republic (November). The location of the General Assembly and Awards is still open, FEP is searching for a national event within its member associations to partner with.

Active participation of the Board members

Board members have now been given different tasks to engage them more into the daily functions of the FEP. Tasks include for example copyright issues,  maintenance of relations and improved dialogue to/from both excisting member associations and sponsors, seeking new sponsorship and recruiting new members. FEP is also looking for a new Press Officer to implement a stronger online presence.

GDPR

The EU General Data Protection Regulation was discussed. As relevant national laws vary from country to country, it is impossible to give a full proof European wide guide on that. It was agreed to have every association/country to handle the GDPR nationally, adapting to their own national laws.

The FEP will be exhibiting in September in Photokina together with its German member association CV. Come and visit us there!FEP Group picture by Tiina Haring, MQEP, Finland.

ATTENTION! You may have received a rather strange email, supposedly from us signed by Giuseppe Scozzi, within the past few days. IT IS AN ATTEMPT TO SCAM! It seems the FEP suffered some sort of a cyber hack and as you can probably guess from its content, it is NOT a real email from us, but a hoax or a scam, so please ignore the message and delete it.
 
The spam comes from giuseppe@europeanphotographers.eu (which is NOT a real FEP address) and it talks about financial obligation in rather bad English as well. If you reply, they give some bank details and even a fake invoice! Be careful and don’t answer, just DELETE the message.
 
We are very sorry for the inconvenience, thank you for your understanding.

This will take place in the next General Assembly. The Board decided to have the General Assembly and the FEP Awards ceremony in Dublin, Ireland, on March 25 and 26, 2018.
Other events in 2018 will be the 2 judging sessions; the location of the first one has already been in decided previously, it will take place in Tampere, Finland 9-11 June 2018. The Board now decided the second judging session will be in Tbilisi, Georgia 17-19 November 2018. The FEP also will be present in Photokina 2018. The calendar 2018 will be also available online soon in the “events” section.
The board also discussed the experiences derived from our new online application systems; it was now in use for the first time.The system was found practical and easy to use, but as it was only the first time it was used, it does still require some fine tuning. 
Also the video judging for the EV/QEV videography qualifications has moved online now. The system is now open for applications until 14 January 2018 after which the judging will take place. 
Also open for entries online the EP qualification and the FEP competition “FEP European Professional Photographer of the Year Awards 2018” (deadline January 7, 2018).

The FEP Board of Directors met in Falmouth, UK, on July 10, 2017. 
 
The Board meeting followed a very successful judging weekend at the University of Falmouth, where the QEP chairman Jim Lowe teaches at the photography course. This was now the first Board meeting with Anna Kaleva-Tsagklas serving as the CEO.
 
In the meeting, the Board decided on a change to the qualification rules; in the future also QEP candidates can give a title and a short description to their panels. Also, starting from the second judging session of 2017, the QEP and MQEP application paperwork can be submitted online. The judging itself will continue to be based on prints.
 
The Board also decided to enlarge the judge pool used in qualifications and competitions. Currently a member association can nominate annually 1-3 judges which then can be used in judgings for either the qualifications or the competition. In the future, member association can nominate two sets of judges, for qualifications and competitions separately.
 
It was also decided to adjust the timetable of the FETA, the Emerging Talent Award. The deadline of the current will be extended until November and FETA’s prizes will be awarded at the same ceremony as the annual European Professional Photographer of the Year – competition’s awards.
 
The FEP events calendar was lightly altered; the Board decided to postpone the judging session in Georgia until 2018. The new location for the second judging session of 2017 will be communicated as soon as it we have it confirmed.
 
Finally, the FEP Board nominated a new member to the World Photographic Cup Committee; FEP is now represented in the WPC Committee by Jean-Felix Bernetel, Bent Nygaard Larsen and Neil Warner (new member).

These were presented by the Photo Book Prize competition’s chairman Adriano Scognamillo. Here are the official results:PORTRAIT category: The history of an era, it’s icons, contradictions with a touch of nostalgia and great professionalism. The winner is the “Edition Lammerhuber”, from Austria, with the book “In Love With Photography”. Authors of the book are Volker Hinz and Peter Matthias Gaede.
 
MONOGRAPH category: The book shows a very clear and consistent approach to subject matter, nice sober styling for design. High level of technical stills, without the overly processed approach often seen in urban explorer photography. The winner is “Morren Galleries”, from Netherlands, with the book “Touched by Time”, photographer Daan Oude Elferink.
 
LANDSCAPE category: These photographs, taken of well-known battlegrounds, capture not only the landscape but the human history that lies in it. The peaceful and beautiful images bear witness of the capacity of the world to survive and repair itself with beauty and grace. The winner is again “Edition Lammerhuber”, from Austria, with the book “Fields of Battle – Lands of Peace, 1914-1918”. The author is Michael St Maur Sheil.
 
SELF PUBLISHED category: Our highest compliments to a highly skilled artisan, photographer, editor and work photographed. The book produced is exceptional. The winner is Pierre Delaunay, from France, with “Atelier du Vitrail Saint-Joseph”. 
 
SELF PROMOTION category: Nature and sensations, abstraction and reflections lead the observer in our world, old but new, always full of meanings. The winner is photographer Peter Lik, from Las Vegas, USA, with the book “Equation of Time” .
REPORTAGE category: An extraordinary publisher that captures unsung stories and presents them without stereotypes or inhibitions. With 3 books winnings in this category: “White Ebony” (author: Patricia Villocq), “Copacabana Palace” (author: Peter Bauza) and “Bis Zum Horizont/Towards The Horizon” (authors: Emil Gataullin and Peter-Matthias Gaede), the Edition Lammerhuber from Austria wins the title of “Best Publisher 2017” 
 
SPECIAL MENTION: For his sensitivity and realism in a work that presents the powerful stories of wounded Dutch veterans. The winner of this special mention is the photographer Dennis Van Lingen, from Netherlands, with  “Wounded Dutch Veterans”.And finally, the title of the FEP BEST BOOK 2017 goes to: “THE LIFE IN TIBET”, photographer Wang Hui. A young Chinese man teaches Tibetan boys and captures their daily life with great joy and lightness, writing the captions in his own blood. A unique, impressive work in two volumes that is rich in poetry.
