Reflections of the Festival Director after the 2016 Event

Firstly, on behalf of the Organising Committee I would like to thank you once again for entering the Royal Photographic Society International Audio Visual Festival - your support is very much appreciated. The Festival is one of the most prestigious AV Festivals in the world and we received a record number of 122 entries from 14 countries. With such a high level of entries, we were sorry not to be able to show them all over the Festival weekend. We offer our commiserations to all those entrants whose work was not shown at the Festival.

Over the weekend of 24th and 25th September 2016 the Jury judged 83 AV Programmes and the Results and Catalogue can be viewed by clicking on ‘Archive’ to the right of this note.

Congratulations if your entry received an Award or a FIAP Acceptance, the certificates will be posted in the next few days, with awards following in due course. If your entry did not receive an Award or a FIAP Acceptance, but was shown at the Festival, this was still a real honour and an achievement of which you can be very proud.

Once again thank you for entering the Festival and we do hope you will continue to support the event in future years.

Yours sincerely,

Edgar Gibbs
