What it really translates to is the Australian Institute of Professional Photography Western Australian Epson Professional Photography Awards Presentation. That's a drinks night and party with photos for, by, and at professional photographers. But they're not being stand-offish - if you'd like to see the pictures and hear the speeches and find out what is going on you can join in too.
The venue is the East End Bar and Lounge - always a good sign when they hold one of these things in a bar - at 198 High Street, Fremantle. It is on Wednesday, 4th of July, and starts at 7:00.
The advertising card for it asks you to " dress to impress ". Given that you may meet clients and employers at the affair, this would be wise, though there is such a wide variety of impressions that may be made...
It is not expensive - $ 50 entry - but you will have to be quick. The organisers have asked for a booking before the 22nd of this month. A quick transfer on your computer over to the AIPP website will bring you the contact details, and you should be in for the party. I am going to look out my most impressive outfit right now - I hope the wig has not uncurled in this wet weather. If it looks bad I'll have to go as Ben Franklin.
