The Ipswich Photographic Society is the oldest continuously operating photographic club in Queensland, formed in 1890.
We are a group of mostly amateurs who like to share our passion for photography with workshops, presentations and social competitions.
The club is moving to the new digital image submission system for all competitions. You will need a user account, which is accessible from the "login" button above.
Go to the bottom of the page for the "Membership Information and Membership Request" button.
There are explanatory videos covering all aspects of how the new system works and there will be explanations and help with the new system at the January and February meetings.
The videos are under the "Help" menu, plus, there will be a button for the video on each page that you visit within this website.
The Club has a FaceBook page.
