The FEP Board members met in Rome on Monday, November 27, after the QEP/MQEP judging session.  This was the last Board Meeting of our sitting President, Andreas Barylli-Fayer, before the exchange of power to the now President Elect Truls Løtvedt. This will take place in the next General Assembly. The Board decided to have the General Assembly and the FEP Awards ceremony in Dublin, Ireland, on March 25 and 26, 2018.

Other events in 2018 will be the 2 judging sessions; the location of the first one has already been in decided previously, it will take place in Tampere, Finland 9-11 June 2018. The Board now decided the second judging session will be in Tbilisi, Georgia 17-19 November 2018. The FEP also will be present in Photokina 2018. The calendar 2018 will be also available online soon in the “events” section.
The board also discussed the experiences derived from our new online application systems; it was now in use for the first time.The system was found practical and easy to use, but as it was only the first time it was used, it does still require some fine tuning. 

Also the video judging for the EV/QEV videography qualifications has moved online now. The system is now open for applications until 14 January 2018 after which the judging will take place. 

Also open for entries online the EP qualification and the FEP competition “FEP European Professional Photographer of the Year Awards 2018” (deadline January 7, 2018). 

The FEP staff would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody for their co-operation and support during 2017 and wish you a Merry Christmas and Prosperous New Year 2018!
