We are happy to inform you that the IPC (International Photo Council, of which FEP is a member) has accepted the FEP nomination of Bernd Gassner to receive the IPC Leadership Award 2012. The IPC nomination Committee, consisting of Alice Miller, Kathy Magrane, and Kathy Schneider, invited him on May 17, 2012 at the United Nations, New York City, to receive this prestigious award. After Martin Vrabko, in 2011, Bernd Gassner, which is the only one European photographer holding 2 Master QEP certificates, is the second consecutive FEP officer to receive this award.
Friday, February, 4th, we held in the FEP-CEO office in Rome a very productive meeting about the website communication.
FEP CEO Giuseppe Scozzi, the President Elect and Press Officer Jorgen Brandt, the Vice-President Malcolm Sales and the CEO Assistant Martina Scozzi met with Christopher Tierney, web provider, to discuss and study possible future changes on the FEP website.
The awful weather conditions make the atmosphere quite surreal, but we’re confident in a short time very good results will be shown on line.
