Last month, the 28 companies that were awarded 2010 TIPA awards received their trophies at a special banquet at Photokina.
Every year the 30+ magazines that make up the Technical Image Press Association vote on the best photographic products of the year and honour them with a TIPA Award. Although the awards are presented annually, every two years the ceremony takes on a special flavour because it’s held during the massive Photokina trade show in Germany.
TIPA members are independent photography magazines. Reflecting its origins most member magazines are based in Europe. However, in the past couple of years, the membership has expanded to other countries including Australia, China, Canada, South Africa and the USA. Photo Life is the sole member from Canada.
