FEP summer closure and FEP current activities



FEP Secretariat will make a break for 2 weeks, from August 15 to August 28, but for urgent matters  you can always find us via e-mail.  
This season means for many of us a rest and an amazing holiday time. However, FEP activity will not stop! 
There are 2 important competitions open, the FETA and the World Photographic Cup!  For both of them, the time to register is NOW! 
You can find all information about FETA here and on WPC website www.worldphotographicup.org
As for FETA,  we remind you that this year winner will also get the IPC Kunio Yatomi Scholarship, the same award given to graduate students in Japanese university who major in photo-imaging with outstanding achievement which means a 1000 US dollars check for the winning student, and the ceremony will be held in Amsterdam on November 20th, 2016. 
As for  WPC, we remind at you that last year 3 European teams (Portugal, Russia and Slovakia) cleaned the table of the medals! This year will not be easy to remain on the top spot…but we need a massif participation of al the FEP members associations.  To be selected for a national team, like in the Olympics, it’s a prestige no  other photographic competition can match. And remind that the special rules of the WPC offer all the finalists in each category the chance to bring points  for the team!  Don’t let your association miss that opportunity! FEP members  and previously  entered teams have priority rights, but please consider registering  your team within the end of the month …
There is also a major photographic event coming soon, where FEP is involved, which is photokina. FEP will have a huge booth at the event, where  you will also have the chance to meet the colleagues and to admire a gallery of the best images of our FEP competition,  the WPC winning images and some of the most amazing pictures of our recent qualified QEP and MQEP. More details about that will come soon.
Speaking about the current and next qualifications, we remind you that the registration for the EP are always open (clic here) online through the FEP website , enter it now!
