Associate of Wilmington International Exhibition of Photography


I have got yet another international distinction of Associate of Wilmington International Exhibition of Photography (AWIEP) in recognition of my acceptances in this prestigious international exhibition.
The Wilmington International Exhibition of Photography is organized by Delaware Photographic Society, USA. This prominent organization had held its first exhibition in 1934. This year they organised 77th Wilmington International Exhibition of Photography.

The distinction of AWIEP makes me second Associate of WIEP from India as Mr B.H. Kapadia is first AWIEP from India. Also, I am third from the sub-continent as Mr Shaikh M. Amin from Pakistan is a Senior Associate of WIEP.

The Delaware Photographic Society has a practice to honour participants of the Wilmington International Exhibition of Photography with honours of Associate, Senior Associate and Fellow of WIEP on the basis of their number of acceptances. In case of honour of AWIEP, one requires 10 acceptances in WIEP within a contiguous 10 years period. I had achieved this level in less than ten years. All these exhibitions in which I participated were recognised by the PSA.
