Tribute to Marie-Claire Dubourg


MARIE-CLAIRE-DUBOURG-2-300x274

The talented photographer passed away in the heart of "her" mountain. A fatal fall from the tops of Aydius, which caused great dismay.
 
Marie-Claire Dubourg, whose studio is located in Pau, France, facing the church Saint Martin in Pau, suffered a fall in the mountains of the Aspe valley, she loved photographing with her husband, Vincent. The talented photographer had obtained various international awards, among 2 QEPs on illustration and portrait. The FEP offers its deepest condolences to the family members and to all colleagues of the GNPP.

FEP Secretariat will make a break for 2 weeks, from August 15 to August 28, but for urgent matters  you can always find us via e-mail.

As for  WPC, we remind at you that last year 3 European teams (Portugal, Russia and Slovakia) cleaned the table of the medals! This year will not be easy to remain on the top spot…but we need a massif participation of al the FEP members associations.  To be selected for a national team, like in the Olympics, it’s a prestige no  other photographic competition can match. And remind that the special rules of the WPC offer all the finalists in each category the chance to bring points  for the team!  Don’t let your association miss that opportunity! FEP members  and previously  entered teams have priority rights, but please consider registering  your team within the end of the month …
