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 30 titles, published in eight European countries and seven non-European countries.


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


Each year, the editors of the member magazines vote for the best products introduced to the market during the previous twelve 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, a biennial trade fair for the photographic and imaging industries.
