FIAP Biennial Results

I was thrilled when I received the WPF results from the FIAP Colour Biennial, held in Greece.

We did so well to achieve 2 Medals; a FIAP Silver Medal to Tom Dee from Afan Nedd, with “Cuddles in the Coal Bunker” and a HPS Gold Medal for the Best Journalism to David Hopes from Bridgend & District camera club for “Number 18 Being Chased”. Congratulations to them both.

The WPF report card can be seen here.

Thanks to everyone who sent images, this is very much appreciated.

FIAP Colour Biennial Results 2021

The results of the 29th FIAP Biennial are in. Thank you so much to those of you who sent me images so I could enter on behalf of the WPF.

The 29th Colour Print Biennial was won by PAGB. The WPF finished 13th from 36 countries.

The 29th Colour Projected Biennial was won by Russia with PAGB 22nd and the WPF 24th from 36 countries.

The two themes we chose were ‘Olympic Sports’ and ‘Light in the Landscape’. I am thrilled to say that Glen Porter of Gwynfa CC received a Silver medal in the sport section (prints). Congratulations Glen, a great achievement in a worldwide event. Here are the results.

I was a little disappointed with our Landscape results, as I thought they deserved more but that’s the way it goes. I’ll be looking for some Mono images later in the year when we have decided on our two themes.

Once again, I would like to thank everyone who sent me images. Without you we wouldn’t have been able to enter. Well done each and every one of you.

Jenny Hibbert (WPF President).
