I have been a member of a local photo club called Bekkalokket Fotoklubb for six years. The club is again part of Norsk Selskap for Fotografi – NSFF (The Norwegian Society for Photography). The society is a member of Federation International de l’Art Photographique (The International Federation of Photographic Art) – a bit complicated, isn’t it?
Today I received news that I have been awarded the distinction Excellence FIAP. The distinction is based on the results obtained in various international contests (called salons). I have never looked upon myself as an especially excellent photographer, but now I can at least pretend to be one 🙂 .
C’est magnifique – n’est pas?
