Being an image-maker these days is often an isolated profession. You spend a lot of time behind the camera and even more time in front of the computer screen.

The AIPP understands this, which is why the AIPP Community is such an important part of your AIPP membership.

Joining the AIPP community is just the beginning. Your AIPP membership will help you develop your business, refine your photographic style, and expand your support network.

Being Involved

Being an active member of the AIPP and developing your network and making new friends is a definite benefit of membership. All AIPP members can attend AIPP workshops, seminars and events at discounted prices, including major events.

Peer Review

How do you know if your imaging standard could be improved? As an AIPP member, you are invited to take part in the ultimate ongoing assessment and submit your work for peer review in annual awards in both photography and video production.

Keeping you Informed

As a member, you can access a collection of specimen contracts and template documents, as well as an extensive collection of digital magazines. Members also receive discounts on some trade magazines too.

Money-Saving Offers

AIPP trade partners generously provide unique ongoing offers to members from free services to great discounts and more.

Advocating for your Industry

AIPP is considered the peak representative body for image-makers. As such, government departments, legislators and the ATO all seek opinion and input from AIPP on matters ranging from copyright legislation through to the tax treatment of photographic assets. By becoming an AIPP member you are helping to support this advocacy effort, and more importantly, helping to further refine and raise the profile of photography and video production.
