This morning, Seamus Mulcahy’s panel earned him his Associateship Distinction from the Irish Photographic Federation. Hard work, plenty of time and effort, and his skill earned him this award.
All of us here in Blarney Photography Club congratulate you, Seamus, and we look forward to the club meeting next Thursday when you present your panel for our viewing.
Seamus is the fifth member of the club to earn their Associateship, following in the footsteps of Fergal O’Callaghan, Mark Gorman, Rory O’Connor and Cian O’Mahony. Bill Power has a Fellowship distinction. If anyone wants to go forward to that, perhaps Bill can help them.
What is the Associateship? The IPF offers a summary of what they’re looking for on their website:
The Irish Photographic Federation awards distinctions on three levels – Licentiate, Associate and Fellow, in ascending order.The Irish Photographic Federation
The Associateship is the second of these levels and requires a panel of fifteen images to be presented for assessment. The panel should sit together as a cohesive body of work and demonstrate the applicant’s individuality and sustained ability in photography. Successful applicants are entitled to use the letters AIPF after their name.
