MIPP’s Annual Photography Convention, 2015 edition

Held in collaboration with the UK’s Society of Wedding and Portrait Photography (SWPP), this convention brings together MIPP members (along with media and photography students) in a series of forums and workshops which enables them to exchange and learn from several experiences, creativity methods and varied techniques with a number of speakers, local and foreign, who are purposely brought to Malta for this event. The MIPP’s annual convention is the fruit of a 10-year long joint collaboration with the SWPP, which has over 3,000 members.

“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 bookings@mipp-malta.com.

Founded 19 years ago, the MIPP has amongst its over 250 members several students, photography professionals, as well as those who practice or have to heart the art of photography. Also serving as a teaching institution, the MIPP promotes the improvement of technical photographic knowledge and photographers’ professional status and their perception by the public, Photographic Industry operators, whilst achieving and maintaining standards in professional practice and conduct.This it does for the benefit of photography and buyers of photography,so as to safeguard, monitor and deal with matters which affect professional photography.
