In 2011 I gained my EFIAP distinction (Excellence de la Fedération Internationale de l'Art Photographique). As with the AFIAP (which must be gained first), this is achieved by accumulating successes in FIAP recognised international salons - 150 acceptances with at least 50 different images in at least 30 different salons, in a minimum of 15 different countries.
One also has to submit a panel of ten of the prints that had counted towards the award. The ten prints I chose, in no particular order, are shown below:
I gained my EFIAP/b (Bronze level) in 2014 - the 'levels' start from 'zero' after EFIAP - none of the A/EFIAP acceptances may be counted towards the 75 that go towards EFIAP/b, and one also has to have gained at least three awards with three different titles in three different countries.
