EV Rules and Regulations
Video Qualifications for the Federation of European PhotographersThe FEP European VIDEO qualification, just as the still images, will be assigned to the authors, not the works. The Creative control of the works must have been in the hands of the entering videographer although others may have been assisting in the production.
The EVThe 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.
