Christmas – New Year Greetings Cards contest

Dear photo friends

Working as Liaison officer in last 4 years I found the communication among the people responsible for FIAP affairs on all levels and countries is limited to communication mainly on necessary exchanging of information. I believe it is due to our fast, too fast life style. But, it is interesting we are all happy when we meet every two years at FIAP congresses. Maybe those are also the events we don’t need to hurry we can even somehow stop the rushing time.

I was thinking how to make our every day e-communication warmer. The New Year holidays we celebrated recently is probably a good opportunity to do something. My idea was, stop routine sending good wishes in accordance to our e-mail address list. I’ll try to stop the people for a second, and gently push them to think what a material they have and what is out of it appropriate to use for sending of good wishes and what is better for such a contest. This is also somehow a little replacement of our dissatisfaction because we, due to our engagement with FIAP affairs have not so much time as we wish to spend for preparing material for real salons.

When I initiated the “Christmas – New Year Card contest” I didn’t had in mind a real competition I want to bring people working on FIAP affairs more close together so I called this event call it as a FIAP family meeting. At this FIAP family meeting, participated 37 photo friends – authors from 28 countries. I am happy with this result.

The judgement was done, as I said in entry condition, by my colleague from the Janez Puhar Photo Society Kranj, by Mr. Niko Sladic. When I was preparing images for judgement – coding images and hiding the name of author expressing best wishes, I was thinking what a hard job I assigned to my friend. But it is truth, it would be even much harder for me. I personally know more than half of participants at this meeting. And with majority of the others we established also a very good communication during the period of collecting the cards – images. I can’t judge the works of my friends. In each card I saw something positive, something that reminds me on my childhood, something nice or simply good work.

So Niko selected tree best works, and some other they fit according to his opinion in the collection presenting our perception of what the New Year card should consist of.
