20th FIAP Nature Biennial - Russia 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed all our plans and made it impossible for us to judge the Biennial in person. The situation has become much more widespread than we could have anticipated. For this reason, we have decided to make an exception by judging this Biennial online.

Both the Digital section and the Print section will be judged in digital format using the original images uploaded by the participants on the platform when registering.  The difference will be that we will effectively have two digital sections, one with collections of 10 photos and another section with collections of 20 photos.

The judging will be completed on the 15th August. A few days after the judging date, the participating countries will receive their individual reports. The complete results of the Biennial will be published here no later than the 25th August.

Biennials are one of the most important events offered by FIAP. They are organized every two years in a different member country. Even years for  Black and White and Nature Biennials, odd years for the Colour Biennial

The participation is free. Biennials have a very particular characteristic, different from the international contests. It is not only the quality of the individual work that counts, but FIAP ask for coherent collections, as well of the viewpoint of inspiration and conception as form the viewpoint of execution and presentation. The judgement of the collections is made in two steps:  
1) the judgement of each work of the collection
2) the global judgement of the collection.
The collection obtaining the highest score by the addition of the points of the first and the second judgment, wins the  World Cup of the corresponding Biennial. Individual prizes are also awarded to the best works regardless of the classification by federations.
