I am currently working toward my AFIAP and EFIAP distinctions by submitting work to open competitions (“salons” ). "33% (6)" means that the image was submitted 6 times, and has been accepted 33% of those times. Note that many of the "100%" images have only been submitted a few times—they may just have been lucky! "n/a" means that the image has been submitted, but results not yet received. The list of FIAP salons is at http://patronages.fiap.net/Mensuel14.htm.
