Distinctions Update

Delighted to report that two Club members recently received Photography Distinction Awards. First up was Naoise Kelly. Naoise has been awarded a Licentiate distinction granted by the Societies of International Nature & Wildlife Photographers (SINWP)

Naoise has only been a member of the SINWP since April 2018. He was required to submit 20 images which were scrutinised by four assessors. The images were deemed to be of the required quality. Commenting on his future plans he says he “hope to apply for a Licentiateship with the Irish Photographic Federation, either this year, or by May 2019 and also an Associateship in time with the SINWP.” Naoise also paid tribute to fellow club members and especially James Mahon and Peadar Doogue for the help and support I’ve received in gaining the award.

James Mahon has been awarded an AFIAP distinction. Earlier this month, at an event in Dublin organised by the Irish Photographic Federation, he was presented with an AFIAP Certificate, Pin and FIAP Card by Domnic Reddin (National President President of the IPF) and Paul Stanley (IPF FIAP Liaison Officer).  

FIAP (Federation Internationale de L’ Art Photographique) is one of the two major governing bodies of world photography, the other being the PSA (Photographic Society of America. The distinction “Artist FIAP” (AFIAP) is the first artistic distinction that can be obtained. It is awarded to photographic artists whose artistic qualities, technique and production of work have been acknowledged through the participation in international salons under FIAP Patronage.

The candidate for this distinction must:

  1. Have taken part with success in international salons under FIAP Patronage for at least 1 year.
  2. Have taken part with success in at least 15 international salons under FIAP Patronage in at least 8 different countries
  3. Have obtained at least 40 acceptances with at least 15 different works in international salons under FIAP Patronage.
  4. 10% of the required acceptances in salons under FIAP Patronage have to be gained in “Print” salons,

Speaking after the event James said “It was a great day and I was delighted to have one of my images chosen to be exhibited. My sincere thanks to all who have helped me achieve this milestone, most especially my family and fellow members in the Athy Photographic Society. It is now upwards and onwards to achieve the next distinction level of EFIAP which hopefully should be next June”

We wish both Naoise and James continued success in their photographic endeavours.

  2. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Cheers|

  3. I might also like to state that most individuals who find themselves with out health insurance are generally students, self-employed and people who are jobless. More than half in the uninsured are really under the age of 35. They do not really feel they are wanting health insurance because they are young and healthy. Their own income is usually spent on homes, food, and also entertainment. Many individuals that do go to work either 100 or part-time are not made available insurance by their work so they get along without because of the rising expense of health insurance in america. Thanks for the thoughts you talk about through your blog.

  4. One thing is the fact that one of the most frequent incentives for making use of your credit card is a cash-back or even rebate present. Generally, you’ll receive 1-5 back upon various acquisitions. Depending on the credit card, you may get 1 back on most acquisitions, and 5 back on purchases made in convenience stores, gas stations, grocery stores plus ‘member merchants’.
