Keep up to date with the latest news and events from the BIPP.

Enter by August 26th to be in the mix for the 2020 UK World Photographic Cup team. It's free to enter, so what are you waiting for?! The World Photographic Cup is an international, inter-organisation competition showcasing the very best in contemporary photography from 32 countries including USA, China, Finland, Mexico & Russia amongst many others. There are six different categories and Australia were last year's winners overall.   The BIPP is responsible for fielding the UK team and we would like to ask the whole membership to offer up their very best images so that we can field a world beating team entry. You can offer an image in just one category or several if you prefer. The 2020 WPC ceremony will be held in Rome and the BIPP will be sending a delegation to represent the Institute. So not only is this a chance for your photography to be seen on an international stage, it's also an opportunity... Read More »

My thanks to Nathen from Fuji and Chris from Broncolor for making the trip to the Artistry House. I also would like to thank Sean Conboy and Jonathan Beer for being ever supportive of the institute, giving up their time and helping to demonstrate these amazing products.

Of course, a big thank you to all the members who visited. Having the chance to play with the products in such an inspirational and relaxed environment worked really well.

It was a great success.

Please get involved, we need more members to support these days! I want to do a lot more events, so we need your growing support to keep putting them on.

Giving value to our trade partners by having as many members as possible will make it possible for them to justify future events. It will also help us to attract more companies to work with us and offer more incentives!

Let’s make it a win, win for all!

Martin

Dear British Institute of Professional Photography Member, I have had the honour of being appointed as your new CEO and look forward to serving you, the membership. It has only been seven weeks since taking on this role and I am really pleased with what we have achieved in such a short period of time. My first job has been to build a process in the office for the new regional awards, culminating in the print judging at The Artistry House last month. Most regions have now held their awards presentations, I have attended and received a warm welcome at all of these presentations. I am happy to report that the whole process, starting with the digital entry, through to the print round, has been incredibly successful and has well received by everyone who has taken part. I am excited about the future of the regional awards and looking forward to helping the regions build on this success. To add more value to your investment in printing, any image that made it through to the print round will be automatically entered... Read More »

The World Photographic Cup is fast becoming the most important photographic competition in the world today. Last year they showcased the very best in contemporary photography from 32 countries including USA, China, Finland, Mexico & Russia amongst many others. There are six different categories and Australia were last year's winners overall.

In past years United Kingdom has been purely represented. It’s time for the BIPP to put the United Kingdom back on the map. In the spirit of 1966 lets bring the world cup back Britain!!!

The 2020 WPC ceremony will be held in Rome and Martin Baynes has asked me as team captain to gather a squad of the best talent that United kingdom have to offer. I would like to ask the whole membership to offer up their very best images so that we can choose a world beating team entry. You can offer an image in just one category or several if you prefer. The rules state that there is no time limit for when the image was taken so you can select your very best images for consideration... Read More »
