FETA award

FEP will realise an FEP Emerging Talent Awards programme aimed at offering a European wide certification system for young graduating photographers under the age of 30 years.This is not aimed at replacing any certification or qualification offered by colleges and universities. Rather it would be a photographic equivalent of a “European Drivers Licence” that will give international options for the graduating photographer and extend his/her options for working in the EU.President Neil Warner, and Board Member Jim Lowe and Ivana Matejková will present a more advanced project, including the practical aspects of this project and a budget to the next GA meeting.
