FiPP 2017

FiPP

THE PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION THE WORLD IS COMING TO LOVE The biennial Fremantle International Portrait Prize seeks to promote the very best in worldwide contemporary photographic portraiture. Proceeds directly assist charity.
STORY FROM CONCEPT TO REALITY FiPP started as the germ of an idea for Fremantle photographer Dale Neill and a couple of camera-mad mates in the mid-2000s. By 2009 a small working party had beeen formed to try to bring the shared vision to reality. In 2010 planning began in earnest. Together the future FiPPers shared a vision to create the world’s most ethical and accessible photographic competition. The Fremantle International Portrtait Prize was the result. First staged in 2012, the event exceeded expectations with 696 entries being received from 22 countries. It was decided, although envisaged as a biennial event, to stage a second competition in 2013 (mainly to prevent it conflicting with the now-defunct Photo Freo festival). So, in 2013 FiPP 2 attracted an incredible 1760 entries from 29 countries! Two years later, FiPP 3 was staged - it attracted a record 1865 entries. Over the three competitions, the FiPP organisers were able to donate more than $50,000 to its charity beneficiary, Arthritis & Osteoporosis WA. And all this by a non-paid, volunteer committee of between 8 and 10 passionate souls.
