The FEP EUROPEAN PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2011 is ORIOL JOLONCH, from Spain



The aim of this competition is to help promote the photographic profession and to raise the level of professional standards. The competition is a non-profit event and all fees collected will be used to promote the FEP and the FEP member associations.

The "FEP European Professional Photographer of the Year Awards", sponsored by Epson, will be open to all professional photographers who are registered and resident in a European country. Special sections will also be open for international photographers (who are not resident in a European country) and for European Young Photographers, Assistants and Students.

There are six categories: WEDDING; COMMERCIAL; PORTRAIT; REPORTAGE; LANDSCAPE; ILLUSTRATIVE.
There are also two special sections: INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS (for non- European professional photographers), and YOUNG PHOTOGRAPHERS & STUDENTS open to the students of recognised schools of photography and to photographers and assistants under 25 year of age.

Entrants who are members of a FEP member association will have to nominate the national association of which they are member.
Students must indicate their relevant photographic institute.
Assistants must indicate the name of the photographic studio where they are employed.

How to Enter

The competition is totally Web based; the signup, hosting and the judging will all be carried out online.

To enter a session, the photographers have to complete the entry form online. Entrants must submit a set of 3 images of the same entered category. They may enter only one set of 3 images per category in each of the 6 categories (18 images maximum). The images must be anonymous.

Images must not have entered other FEP Competitions.
Images must not have received prices in other international competitions.

Next closing date for receipt of entries is July 31st 2011.

Submitted images must be larger than 1200 pixels on the longest side, and less than 2MB in size. As an approximate guide, an image size of around 2400 pixels (on the longest side) and a .jpg compression setting of 10 (on Photoshop’s scale) will give a suitable file.

Images must be also free of borders as they artificially reduce the image resolution and make the image unsuitable for the FEP’s online gallery.

Entry Fees
For photographers who are members of FEP member associations, an entry fee of 10,00 Euro for each series of 3 images is mandatory. They can enter all the 6 categories.
QEP and MASTER QEP holders can enter one category for free, then, should they like to enter other categories, they have to pay 10,00 Euro per category, like other FEP members. They can enter all the 6 categories.
For European photographers who are not members of FEP member associations, an entry fee of 30,00 Euro is mandatory for each series of 3 images. They can enter all the 6 categories.
International photographers (who are not citizens of a European country), may only enter their special section, and an entry fee of 30,00 Euro is mandatory.
Young Photographers & Students may only enter their special section, and an entry fee of 5,00 Euro is mandatory.
Entrants are required to pay the entry fee through Paypal (a safe system for credit cards).


Prizes

All photographs entered will be assessed by an international FEP jury with an online voting system and awarded points out of 100.
The image achieving a score between 70/100 and 79/100 will be presented with a Bronze Award Certificate. Those obtaining a score between 80/100 and 89/100 will be presented with a Silver Award Certificate and finally, those obtaining a score of at least 90/100 will be presented with a Gold Award Certificate by the FEP.

The ranking of the entrants will be gained by adding the scores achieved by each and all of the 3 images submitted. The top 10 photographers in the ranking in each category will be claimed as "finalist", and the top of the ranking will be claimed as "the winner".

From the 6 category winners the jury will then select an Overall Winner, who will be presented as the “FEP European Professional Photographer of the Year”.

The winners will be awarded at a special ceremony to be held in the second half of 2011. Date and venue of the ceremony will be communicated at a later stage.

The awards will consist of certificates and GOLDEN CAMERA awards.

Epson will print the top 3 images per each category for inclusion at the annual award ceremony. All participants will receive the official results by e-mail.

Criteria

The principal judgment criteria which the jury will award points for are: visual impact, composition, originality, technique, and creativity, ability to communicate a message, a feeling and an emotion.
