Press Release:

Following the Photokina presentations Epson has pledged to increase its support for the Federation of European Photographers (FEP) next year.

Claes Jeppsson, Epson Senior Business Manager said: "Following the tremendous success of these inaugural awards we have pledged to back the programme for at least another two years. The FEP mission to promote the highest standards of professional photography across Europe resonates well with our overarching commercial strategy and our future support will include funding for events and ongoing training programmes - and we are also jointly planning a travelling photo-exhibition of the entries and overall winners."

Said FEP President Neil Warner: "This was the first FEP competition of its kind across Europe and the first year's entries comprised simply stunning images from all successful QEP (Qualified European Photographer) candidates in 2008."

He added: "Our ground-breaking Epson-supported competition will now be open to all professional photographers in Europe for the next three years. In a European photographic competition first all entries will be judged online and photographers who submit entries will be able to monitor images submitted by their peers  and change their own entries up to an agreed date, if they so wish."

The FEP is composed of the national professional associations, representing over 50,000 professional photographers from twenty countries across Europe, and is pledged to promote and represent photographic excellence throughout the continent.

The entries and winning images from the 2008 awards and further information about the 2009 awards can be found here.
