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.
