Welcome to the new website for the IFVP community of visual practitioners!
This website was designed for you, a visual practitioner, to be able to have a presence as a professional in this field, locatable and findable on the web.
Therefore, the primary focus is to give our members a profile page, much like the ones that exist for LinkedIn and XING, where you can describe your mission or work purpose in a short statement, identify how to contact you, list your website and social media points of contact, and connect you to a map, visualizing where you are located in the world.
The mapping function is entirely new. It only shows active members of the IFVP on a Google-based map for potential clients to find you. Only active, current IFVP members’ profiles will appear on the map and in searches.
Your profile page gives you a place to write a short biography, and a place to highlight your visual work in a Showcase area, after you have uploaded pictures into your personal gallery. You can upload both still images and videos linked from YouTube or Vimeo in your personal gallery.
You may also write blog posts or articles, form groups, open forums for discussions, or list your own events on the new website.
