This is a three-tier system, namely the MIPP Licentiate (LMIPP), the MIPP Associate (AMIPP) and the MIPP Fellowship (FMIPP).
Only MIPP members can qualify for these Distinctions. Student members of the Institute cannot apply for the FMIPP qualification but can apply for LMIPP and AMIPP.
Applicants are requested to submit a photographic print panel of 20 works under specific criteria. These are assessed by a qualified independent panel of experts who decide whether the candidate has reached the required level.
A certificate, given under the common seal of the MIPP, is issued to each successful candidate.
When necessary, the selection panel meets annually, usually during the month of November, in order to assess submissions. Candidates should check in the MIPP newsletter/website for the date of the next assessment meeting as well as the date by which submissions must reach the MIPP designated offices.
Application forms may also be obtained from either contacting the Secretary General or can be downloaded from here.
