The Bristol International Salon of Photography has been a leading international exhibition of photography since 1946. It is an exhibition of digital images open to amateur and professional photographers from all over the world and encompasses all styles of photography from the traditional to the avante garde.
The Salon is conducted under the approved rules of the Photographic Society of America (PSA) and under the patronage of the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) and the Federation Internationale de l’Art Photographique (FIAP). As a result of the efficient running of previous Salons these three organisations have awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze medals for presentation to the top entries in the exhibition. Award winners and acceptances count towards the granting of PSA & FIAP ratings.
I’m currently working towards my EFIAP/b (bronze) which requires all candidates to achieve a minimum of 75 acceptances from 25 different images. Each candidate must also gain a minimum of 3 awards in 3 different countries. However, before a candidate can apply for a bronze rating they must have held the EFIAP distinction for at least 1 year.
This year I sent four images to the Open Section and had the above three images accepted.
