FIAP Colour Print & PDI Biennials

We need your photos!! – Themes ‘BEACH SCENES’ or ‘CREATIVE STILL LIFE’ – by 31st Jan 2016

Full Details from the PDF download link below

The deadline is fast approaching for both the FIAP Colour Print Biennial and the FIAP Projected Image Biennial, and although we have received a number of images from authors already, we could do with a few more to choose the strongest panel. We require a total of 30 photos to complete both of the above entries. Each panel must have a strong coherence both in subject, size and shape which makes it more difficult to select, so even if you have submitted entries on the above themes before, we would welcome any additional images you can send us.

Submission is open to all SPF Club members to submit images. PDIs only in the first instance please (1400×1050 or 1024×768 jpegs**) For the Beach Scenes category, please only submit Square or Landscape format images. The Creative Still Life Format has yet to be determined. If your entry is selected we will require a file 2400 pixels on the longest side for PDI use or a file capable of printing A3 size. Please send your photos to Clive Turner, FIAP Liaison Officer to the email address supplied at the bottom of this email. 

If you have a change in your Club Committee from the people receiving this email please let us know now as we are updating the SPF Directory for issue early 2017.

We require all of the following details not just an email address – Name, Postal address, Phone Number and email address please. Those details should be sent to Libby Smith as soon as possible on the contact details below
or 34 Braemar Crescent, Carluke ML8 4BH

Kind regards,
Libby Smith
