IPF's People & Places (P&P) magazine is in addition to our pen pal service and is a fun and informative way to stay in touch with the pen pal world.

Available by subscription to IPF members and professionally published as a digital magazine in full-colour, P&P contains items of general interest, helpful advice and inspiration for the pen pal experience and beyond that too, including travel, food and culture. 

The 2024 edition is now available!

We always welcome items for publication and the closing date for the next edition is
15 November 2024.

Since December 2017 People & Places has been produced as a digital magaazine and the web link to the magazine is sent to subscribers by email.

The magazine can be viewed on computers, laptops, smartphones, iPads and tablets - it can also be downloaded as a pdf file and printed.

Only IPF members can subscribe to the magazine and the prize money in each edition is only available to subscribers. All prize money is paid in Australian Dollars (AUD) using PayPal.


The subscrption fee for one edition of P&P is: €7, £6, US$8, AUD$10 or ¥1,000 and is shown as the DM service on application forms. (Click here to pay with PayPal.)

When you order the magazine you only pay for one edition, i.e. the current edition; we don't automatically charge you a subscription fee for each edition published.

There are a number of categories throughout the magazine that have a prize of AUD$50, a section with a prize of AUD$100 for schools where a teacher has joined at least one class into IPF within the past 12 months and a special prize of AUD$200 for the best item published in each edition.  

P&P is only published in English.
