The 40th FIAP Youth Digital Biennial 2021 closed for entries on the 1st November 2021. This year, this competition was organised and presented by BFF/FBP of Belgium.
The competition had 2 categories:
Category 1: for youth members up to the age of 16 years, and
Category 2: for youth members up to the age of 21.
Each national association member of FIAP was allowed to enter 20 digital images in each of the categories with a maximum of 2 entries per author. The jury members consisted of a panel from Luxembourg, Netherlands and Belgium.
The Youth Division of PSSA entered 20 images into both categories from 15 authors for category 1 and 10 authors for category 2.
We are extremely excited to report that South Africa was placed 2nd (out of 18 countries) in category 1 and 7th (out of 18 countries) in category 2. With this achievement, PSSA received a FIAP Gold Medal and a FIAP Diploma.

Congratulations to everyone who participated in this competition and for achieving these exceptional results.
