About the AIPA
The AIPA (Advertising and Illustrative Photographers Association) is an incorporated society that represents the interests of commercial photographers in New Zealand.
We are not-for-profit, so any revenue we collect goes back into supporting our members and the photographic industry as a whole.
Founded in 1978, there are now over 250 AIPA members nationwide, representing all levels of experience and areas of specialisation.
The AIPA is committed to:
- Promoting the highest standards in commercial photography
- Advancing the business interests of advertising and illustrative photographers
- Helping educate and inspire photographers through our workshops, seminars and lectures
- Fostering public interest in photography as an art form, via exhibitions and publications
