AWARDS

APPA is the acronym for the Australian Professional Photography Awards, which are held annually and usually coincide with the staging of an annual photo imaging exhibition organised by the Photo Imaging Council of Australia (PICA). The current major sponsor of APPA is Canon.

Professional photographers from Australia and New Zealand compete for a number of industry awards by submitting four images, which are judged by a panel of their peers. The Canon AIPP APPA attracts hundreds of entries and the premier award is the title of “The Canon AIPP Australian Professional Photographer of the Year”. Each year award winning images are published in an Awards Book.

AIPP Members who participate in Canon AIPP APPA are able to accrue “award points” which count towards the achievement of Associate and Master status within AIPP.
