The Australian Photography Society
|Number of Members:||Over 2,000|
|Membership Fee:||$69 per annum|
The Australian Photographic Society was officially formed on 12 May 1962 in Sydney. This was the culmination of three years work by the Australian Photographic Federation, a body specifically established in order to form APS. 101 Foundation Members incorporated the Society in the Australian Capital Territory. As at the 2010 AGM, three of those Foundation Members were still with the Society. All three of them (Graham Burstow, Bill Smit and Gordon Walsh) have been awarded Honorary Life Memberships.
The APS has had to embrace the changing technology of photography to keep the interest of members past, future and present. The Society will always continue with its mission to promote, improve, share and enjoy photography here in Australia and also internationally.
Adult General Membership - $69.00
Adult General Membership OS - $85.00.
The Australian Photographic Society conducts a variety of competitions. Most divisions conduct their own competitions as well as the folio result awards. These are in addition to the APS's own annual National exhibition which is exhibited during APSCON, and the annual Australian Digital Photography Awards for digital projected images. There is also an annual competition against New Zealand in the print, slide and nature sections. Acceptances in these Trans Tasman Competitions attract a very valuable five points towards the attainment of APS Honours under the Exhibition System. There is also an annual Four Nations digital competition between Australia, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa.
