“This is our eleventh edition,” MIPP President Kevin Casha said, “and it gives convention delegates a whole weekend of photographic knowledge, tuition and enjoyment, whilst encouraging networking with our foreign guests and lecturers, besides amongst the MIPP‘s members themselves and other convention participants.”
During the workshops conducted, those attending will be able to learn and appreciate how foreign photographers work and apply their art and craft. “The committed and serious preparatory efforts that goes into the organization of such an event is considerable, and this year has been no exception,” Charles Calleja said from the convention’s organizing committee, “We strive to make this annual gathering of photographers a valid one as much as possible for all participants.”
Photography panels by contestants for the Institute’s Licentiate, Associate, and Fellow qualifications will also be judged during the convention. Booking requests can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
