AIPP Honour Roll

Honours Ribbons awarded for service to the Institute and Photographic Industry.

The awarding of an AIPP honour is the highest level of recognition the Institute can award for contribution to the industry, they are not given lightly and considerable research is undertaken on possible candidates. The assessment and review of nominees is an ongoing process that can take many years as nominees progress to the top of the list. Each year the ongoing contribution and actions of nominees are assessed and can influence the nominees' viability as an honours recipient.

Fellows of the AIPP

Fellowship is an Honour which recognises the outstanding value of an individual's achievement. Evidence of considerable photographic excellence would almost certainly be required as well as a history of outstanding service to the Institute, the photographic industry and Community.

Whereas a Master of Photography or a Grand Master is a recognition of photographic excellence already recognised through the APPA system, a Fellowship is most unlikely to be awarded for photographic achievement alone. With no more than the one dimension of photographic excellence, there is little chance of attaining the award of Fellowship.

The Institute's highest honour is, therefore, one which is regarded as paramount in the Profession of Photography in Australia. This Honour is only considered for AIPP members who have been financial for a minimum of 5 years.

Past National Presidents

The AIPP is a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers. Since its inception, hundreds of members have given countless hours of their business, family and leisure time to ensure the AIPP has survived and prospered. We thank them all for their contribution.

We also challenge the next generation of photographic professionals to help secure the vibrancy and growth of professional photography with their contribution to the running of the AIPP.
