The Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) [1] is an international, non-profit association advocating the interests of the photography and imaging magazine publishing industry. The association represents 28 titles, published in nine European countries and six non-European countries.

History[edit]

TIPA was established in 1991 as an association of European photography and imaging magazines. Since 2009 members have joined from outside of Europe.[2]

Activities[edit]

Each year the editors of the member magazines vote for the best products introduced to the market during the previous 12 months, taking into account innovation, cutting-edge technology, design, ease-of-use and the price to performance ratio of the products.[3]

TIPA holds its awards ceremony every second year [4] at photokina.[5]
