Our two Swedish members, Nils-Erik Jerlemar and Jan-Thomas Stake have been awarded the EFIAP/D2-distinction. Both members are massively participating in international salons and have won a number of prizes over time. To be awarded the EFIAP/D2 distinction, you must have 100 awards with 30 works in 7 different countries. But they have won far more than that! You can see some of their pictures on the FIAP page. They will receive the diplomas at the Swedish national congress this spring.

A big congratulation to both Nils-Erik and Jan-Thomas!

ASAHI SHIMBUN

Members of Stella Polaris performed well at this year’s Asahi Shimbun exhibition. Five authors had sent print for evaluation, and all five received accepts.

Asahi Shimbun is a Japanese print salon. Although submitted about 9,000 images, they only accept 130 images, half from Japan and half from the rest of the world! It’s almost easier to win in the lottery than to get an acceptance here. All accepted images receive a gold medal.

The high jumpers in Stella Polaris are Ole Suszkiewicz, who through the time has 13 acceptances in total, including nine consecutive years, as well as Nils-Erik Jerlemar, who has impressive eight accept. Then follows Jan-Thomas Stake with four, Roald Synnevåg with two and finally Bjarne Hyldgaard, who received the first acceptance this year.

You can see Nil-Erik Jerlemars accepts here. Enjoy!

OLE SUSZKIEWICZ – EFIAP/D2

As the first Dane ever, Ole Suszkiewicz is awarded the EFIAP/D2 distinction.

Ole says: “Since I was a young man I have always taken photos, when I had the opportunity. It started with monochrome in the kitchen of my parents, then many years slides and finally digital. I am not a good technician, however, I have a good feeling how to make a picture in a simple way using a few steps in Photoshop Elements 5. I take almost all kind of subjects, however, afterwards I prefer to make experimental pictures. I like to create my own reality. Normally it starts with the background, it could be a bit of a wall with a special colour. Then I think: Do I have a figure, which would do well there? And so on . .l feel like a painter coming more and more details on the screen.”

A big congratulation to Ole for his achievement!

ROALD SYNNEVAAG – GPSA

Proud to announce that one of our founding members, Roald Synnevaag from Norway, have gotten his portfolio approved and is awarded the GPSA distinction.

“I have chosen to follow the footsteps of the Norwegian composers Edvard Grieg and Harald Sæverud, who found their inspiration in the dramatic nature that is in the landscape of Western Norway. It’s not sunny days that have fascinated me og the composers, but the drama that follows the shift in weather conditions.”

A big congratulation to Roald for his achievement!
