Three directors, elected in 2012, finishing their terms in 2014: Jürgen Schrader, Willy Kaemena and Fung Yu.
Two directors who have taken vacant seats during the recent term and who, according to our bylaws, held office until this new election: Gavin D. Farell, Richard Broo.

SPHERICAL REPORT 360°
A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON THE WORLD OF PHOTOJOURNALISM
Spherical Report 360 is a new initiative to discover your view of the world - from 360 degrees. We want to give away 360 RICOH THETA cameras to aspiring photo-journalists and then reward the best pictures with prizes.
please welcome our new board member Gavin Farrell.
Ignacio Ferrado Margeli has won a long term project that needs 100% of his time and attention and thus decided it will serve the IVRPA better if he resigns from the board to make place for new power.
Thank you very much Ignacio for donating your work to the community, it was a always a great pleasure to have you with us.
As by our rules and bylaws the member with the most votes from the last election will step into the board, and Gavin Farrell has accepted his assignment.
