Congratulations to EVs:
The photo and video qualifications will be followed by a meeting of the FEP Board of Directors. Among the items on the agenda, the calendar of events and activity for 2016 , which will include again two judging sessions (candidate venues Poland and the Netherlands), the FEP awards 2016 which will be held in Portugal in March - as long as the winners announcement of the third edition of the World Photographic Cup- and a program linked to the Photokina trade fair in Cologne. Board members will also discuss the option to create an European on line magazine, for a better dissemination of FEP activities.
The EV is a new basic quality assurance certification now available to most general Professional Videographers throughout Europe. The European Videographer (EV) qualification aims to recognise competence and a professional standard for those who earn their lives as Professional Videographers. It is designed to complement the lack of a specific title to uphold the professional status.
Congratulations to Eugenio Li Volsi, QEP - Qualified European Photographer, from Italy!
