Normal club meetings will be held during 2021!

The list of Set Subjects for this year's monthly club competitions has been decided and is available here. Set subject definitions are also listed on the calendar.


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 has moved to a 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 using the new system and there will be explanations and help 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.
If you are on FaceBook, have a look and "like" it :-)
