Matt Whitby, LIPF.
The Irish Photographic Federation awards distinctions on three levels – Licentiate, Associate and Fellowship, in ascending order.
The Licentiateship is the first of these levels and requires a panel of ten images to be presented for assessment. The panel should sit together as a cohesive body of work and demonstrate the applicant’s individuality and sustained ability in photography. Successful applicants are entitled to use the letters LIPF after their name.
