LIPF – Dermot Staunton
One of the most important services provided by the Irish Photographic Federation is the IPF Distinctions service.
Individual photographers present their work before the distinctions judges, who assess whether the applicant should be awarded the relevant distinction applied for.
There are three levels of Distinction:- Licentiateship, Associateship, and Fellowship. Distinctions sittings are held twice a year; typically in May and November.
