The Irish Photographic Federation
The Irish Photographic Federation (I.P.F.) is comprised of photographic clubs throughout the Republic of Ireland. It is governed by a National Council, the members of the Council being elected at the AGM from member clubs. It promotes awareness of photography as a highly satisfying artistic

The Federation also administers a distinctions scheme for its members as a means of promoting photographic excellence.
