The IPF are delighted to announce “A Celebration of Distinctions” on June 17th at Dunamaise Arts Centre in Portlaoise which will give members of clubs an opportunity to see successful Fellowship, Associate and Licentiate panels up close and appreciate the quality of the images and printing. They will also be able to speak to the successful photographers about how the panels were put together and get valuable tips on how to build up panels – and what to avoid!
They are also delighted to confirm our keynote talk will be by Steven Le Prevost on his recent stunning FIPF and FRPS panels, which will be of special interest to Visual Art photographers.
It will be an opportunity to get an insight into the thinking behind successful images, and to get inspiration for new images. If you are planning to go for a distinction, and any level, Dunamaise Art Centre will be the place to be!
Throughout the day, everyone attending will be able to see Nature and Travel Fellowship panels by Bill Power and Gerry Kerr, Associate panels by Marie Phelan, Clodagh Tumilty, Paul Lanigan and Brian Mulligan, covering Flower Studies, Beaches, Street Photography, and Music and Licentiate panels by Jean Johnston, John Mee, Bernie Joyce and Emmanuelle Galisson.
The Celebration of Distinctions will be a must for all who enjoy seeing photographic excellence and creativity, and meeting other photographers to talk about photographs.
The event will also include advice by Des Clinton FIPF and Paul Stanley FIPF, the Chair and Vice-Chair of IPF Distinctions, on preparing panels of assessment with mini feedback sessions available for potential applicants. These will be strictly limited so book early! Those seeking this advise should prepare by bringing a selection of prints (6×4/7×5 size sufficient). Images on computer are not suitable. There is no extra charge for this service.
This event costs €40 per person with discounts available for group bookings from IPF clubs and for paid up IPF distinction holders.
