 The Institute shall be known as the Malta Institute of Professional Photography or M.I.P.P.


 The main objective being the furtherance and improvement of photography and photography practitioners in all aspects.




The Malta Institute of Professional Photography (or M.I.P.P.) has been set up to improve the technical knowledge and professional status as well as the image of persons involved in the Photographic Industry. It is also dedicated to achieve and maintain standards in professional practice and conduct for the benefit of photography and buyers of photography. Its role is also to safeguard, monitor and deal with matters which affect professional photography.






It is also the purpose of the MIPP to be an authoritative voice for professional photographers and the trade in order to be able to lobby on issues concerning the working photographer.

 A great deal has been achieved since the Institute has been in operation, (the first meeting was held on the 30th of July, 1996). The Institute’s main aim is to run on a professional as well as on a commercial basis and this has been fully achieved.


In these few years, the MIPP has become the professional photographer’s voice with the Government, it has run international Seminars and Conventions aimed at improving the skills of its members. It regularly organises photographic exhibitions and fora as well as strives to make the public more aware of the local photographer and his products.

Beginners and hobbyists are also important for the MIPP, and a continous effort is maintained to teach and groom would-be photographers.

The MIPP has also instituted Malta's own Photographic Distinctions and Qualifications, running these on the same lines as those of other European Countries.

Other important items on the Institute’s Calendar are the  MIPP Malta Photographer of the Year Award as well as the MIPP Awards of Achievement. These help in  strenghtening the esteem and status of the Maltese photographer.






Keeping abreast of the changing needs of the profession, the MIPP is also a member of the Federation of European Photographers (FEP) 


The purpose of the MIPP is to continue to improve, teach and collaborate in all spheres of the Photographic circuit, both locally as well as internationally.
