Professional Qualifications

The FEP also organizes the qualification of MASTER QEP; Top 52 European photographers have already received a Master’s degree for their supreme quality. The EFF also launched a new basic vocational qualification (EP) – starting in September 2012 – and a prize for emerging talent (FETA).
