From time to time I enter the FIAP International Salons Exhibitions. These are run under the auspices of the International Federation of Photographic Art. I also enter the BPE Exhibitions (British Photographic Exhibitions). Acceptances in these exhibitions can be aggregated towards achieving the distinctions of the two bodies.
Here’s Pepper with some recent awards! (Clever cat).
Part of my awards collection below – rarely seen out of their hiding place! Gaining awards can boost confidence and encourage you to develop your own personal style. It’s nice to win and to be appreciated for what you do, but the taking part is also important…each salon entered has a catalogue and that is a wonderful way to enjoy other people’s photography from all over the world. Here are some links to get you started.
