CIPP (Certified International Press Photographer)
IAPP offers members the opportunity to become a Certified International Press Photographer (CIPP). Certified members may display the CIPP seal on their personal website, blog, email signature, letterhead or business cards. CIPP status signals that you are a professional in the field of photojournalism and serves as proof of your journalistic activity whenever a press pass is not enough. The signaling value of the CIPP seal may also help you whenever you contact agencies, businesses and other institutions, making it a useful component of your reporting tool kit.
