The 2016 Tipa Awards


Every year since 1991, the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA), hands out awards to the most influential photo and imaging products found in markets from around the world. Every year some of our favorites get awarded this highest accolade and this year is no different. That being said, not everybody hears about these.
