About Us

What is VAPS?

VAPS is a not-for-profit “umbrella” organisation, representing the interests of affiliated camera clubs in the State of Victoria. While recognising, and allowing for, significant differences in the approach and organisation of its constituent clubs, VAPS seeks to represent the interests of Victorian photographers by providing them with a collective voice in matters of concern to the practice of photography in this State. Public liability insurance and accident insurance for voluntary work in all affiliated clubs is maintained.

VAPS is committed to the continuing improvement of photography and stimulates photographers through the conduct of an annual Convention in various locations around the State. On a scale beyond the resources of individual clubs, the Convention provides a venue for speakers, exhibitions, workshops, excursions, competitions and other presentations. The Convention also includes an annual dinner, allowing clubs to meet socially. In conjunction with the Convention, VAPS organises a State-wide inter-club competition, and during the year there are other competitions. VAPS issues a regular newsletter and manages a registry of judges, while also providing training for judges. A system of awards for service and photographic skill provides recognition for excellence.

VAPS conducts two general meetings each year, and the committee meets regularly.
