The panel of this student of photography represents, with a modern presentation, different moment of a traditional Circus, using the CGI. "The viewer is invited to remember the good old times of classic entertainment mixed with a modern presentation" explained the young photographer from Germany.
The FETA winner Christopher Rüsing and the finalists have been presented and awarded during the FETA Award Ceremony on Sunday, December, 13th, in Grado, Italy, at the Photography Masters Conference. Next edition of the FETA Award will open on May 2016, and the Award Ceremony will be held in Amsterdam, Netherlands, aside the QEP-MQEP judging session, November 2016.
We all know that EVERYONE is a winner with WPC, just like being part of a national team at the Olympics. Having an image submitted at this level is without doubt a pinnacle of anyone’s career… medalist or not. By being recognized as a team member for WPC, the respect for the photographer is immediately on a higher plateau.
The WPC is pleased to announce that the judging for WPC 2016 has been successfully concluded. Almost 500 images were evaluated and scored by judges from more than 20 countries. We would like to express our sincere appreciation to all the judges for their amazing dedication and effort:
The “top ten” images in each category will be announced and shown at Imaging USA (https://imagingusa.org) in Atlanta, on January 11, 2016, and circulated after that.

Congratulations to EVs:
The photo and video qualifications will be followed by a meeting of the FEP Board of Directors. Among the items on the agenda, the calendar of events and activity for 2016 , which will include again two judging sessions (candidate venues Poland and the Netherlands), the FEP awards 2016 which will be held in Portugal in March - as long as the winners announcement of the third edition of the World Photographic Cup- and a program linked to the Photokina trade fair in Cologne. Board members will also discuss the option to create an European on line magazine, for a better dissemination of FEP activities.
The EV is a new basic quality assurance certification now available to most general Professional Videographers throughout Europe. The European Videographer (EV) qualification aims to recognise competence and a professional standard for those who earn their lives as Professional Videographers. It is designed to complement the lack of a specific title to uphold the professional status.
