FIAP is the only international photographic organization that is recognized by UNESCO. Founded in 1950, FIAP is present in 92 different countries in the five continents and representing the benefits of more than a million and a half professional and amateur photographers. As an emerging cultural enterprise, Global Photography has been committed to promoting the exchanges of Chinese and foreign photography and tourism cultures. It holds 12 photo contests annually. In just over three years, it has attracted photographers from 174 countries. The participation of photographers from a great many countries and regions has also attracted the attention of the FIAP.

Liu Fusheng, President of Global Photography, first introduced the development history, corporate qualifications and business philosophy of the company. Ioannis Lykouris was optimistic about the development potential of the website, and proposed to establish a Global Photography International Club based on the advantageous resources of the website, making it one of the local member organizations of the FIAP. Global Photography will also launch a number of FIAP-patronaged contests, in which shortlisted and award-winning photographers will obtain badges and the opportunity to earn artistic titles and honorary titles. It is hoped that photographers will be encouraged to participate in more international cultural exchange activities, and constantly improve their artistic attainments.
