FIAP Biennial – Call for Images

This year FIAP will hold a Colour Biennial. It is being held in Athens, Greece. The IPF would like to make an entry as we have done in the past.

There will be two sections:

  • Colour Prints – we have to make an entry of 10 prints, with no more than 1 image per author
  • Digital Images – we have to make an entry of 20 images, with no more than 2 images per author

We are now asking everyone to send us images on the following 3 themes:

  • People
  • Landscape
  • Portraiture

We will make use of the new IPF software. This will allow you to register yourself on the system and then upload up to 4 images for each of the 3 themes.

IPF software guide: Go to and follow the instructions provided in the guide.

Each image should be sized to 3,500 pixels on the longest side and each file should be no larger than 3.6 MB. So you may need to size your JGPS to be quality 7 or 8. But please use the highest you can which allows you to be under 3.5 MB.

The final date for uploading your images is 28 March 2023

This is to allow the selectors review all the images and select the panels. We will then have to print images and post them to the organisers by 01 May 2023.

FIAP tell us that there are two steps to the judging of the entries:

  • Each image is reviewed by the three judges and marked accordingly
  • Each panel is then reviewed and marked for coherence

Any image which scores 8 or more marks will receive an “Acceptance” and can be used towards FIAP Distinctions.

The coherence score is the “make or break” score – so we aim to send the most coherent panels we can.

We look forward to seeing your images and to selecting great panels to represent Ireland.
