FIAP (Fédération Internationale de l’Art Photographique) has announced the following distinctions awarded to members of EPS for success in entering exhibitions or salons in this country and abroad.
Eion Johnston and Terry Railley have both achieved their EFIAP (Excellence of FIAP).  This requires a minimum of 250 acceptances with at least 50 different images in 30 salons in 20 countries
Richard Bingham and Neil Scott have achieved the EFIAP/s (Silver award)  After achieving the EFIAP, there are 4 “levels” – bronze, silver, gold and platinum which must be attained sequentially.  The bronze level requires 75 additional acceptances from 25 images, including three medals or other awards in separate countries.  The silver requires a further 75 acceptances with a minimum of 25 new works, and 4 of these must have been awarded a medal or other award, all in different countries, on top of the three required for the bronze award.
And finally Peter Paterson has been awarded his MFIAP (Master FIAP), the highest FIAP distinction.  Unlike the other awards, this is for a portfolio of 20 prints and a curriculum vitae.  The MFIAP is one of the most difficult distinctions to get, and I think I am right in saying that Peter is only the third Scottish photographer to achieve this goal.
