Irish Photographic Federation
The Irish Photographic Federation is comprised of member clubs throughout Ireland and is dedicated to helping Irish photographers advance the standard of their photography. Activities include running annual championships in all aspects of photography and the organisation of lecture tours by internationally renowned photographers.
International connections are regarded as an essential part of the Federation’s activities and, as a member of the Federation Internationale de l’Art Photographique(FIAP), it sends panels of images to FIAP’s annual world Championships.
The Federation also administers a distinctions scheme for its members as a means of promoting photographic excellence. Photographers can progress from Licentiate, through Associateship to the highest level of Fellowship. The IPF distinctions are highly prized internationally, with many foreign photographers submitting panels for consideration.
