Editorial

The IFWP, International Federation of Wildlife Photography, was founded in 1978, in France.

The Federation is an organization in which associations with similar aims can join. Actually represents 17 European associations and continuously increasing, with more than 5.000 photographers members. It aims to promote ethic nature photography and conservation of habitats and species.

 

We are all volunteers in the IFWP and give our time and efforts for the common welfare.

 

Our activities include:

-Information interchange We keep our association members in touch, updated and informed about each other activities and our Federation ones.

-Congress every year in a different country. A meeting of friendship, learning and photography.

-Competition. Every year the Federation holds a competition online.

-Audiovisuals and exhibitions. Not only from our members, the Federation produces regularly its own publications to show and promote our members work.

 

A new board has started working on 2017 and our plans in short term are: teaching through articles in our website; create a new group called IFWP Conservation; Solidars, a human chain to help photographers who are in special needs of care; and a committee in charge to attend our young photographers´needs and to promote their interests.

 

We bring high hopes and plenty of ideas. Let´s enjoy together of our common passion!

 

All photos on this site are protected by their authors legal rights.

We, photographers, have kindly agreed to allow the Federation to show our work.

All of us hope that you enjoy them and that they help to respect and preserve our Nature.

Thank you.
