What is IPPG?

The Indianapolis Professional Photographers' Guild is a non-profit 501c(6) organization for photographers in the Indianapolis area and beyond. The group exists to promote fellowship, collaboration, a high level of sprit and fraternalism and to maintain high standards professionally and ethically among photographers of all levels.  We welcome all who wish to learn, grow and connect with other like-minded creatives.

Our mission is to provide professional development for serious photographers.

IPPG is a member of the Community Network of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). As such, we are able to offer "for credit" continuing education opportunities for those pursuing advanced photography credentials.

Thank You

The 2023 Indiana State Fair is over! And with that, the 2023 Photography Competition and Gallery is now "in-the-books".

The prints are all down and turned out to their respective makers. The banners and posters are packed away for next year. The floors are swept, we're turning off the lights and locking the doors.

It was a banner year with nearly 700 prints submitted by over 240 entrants, surpassing last year's numbers. The success of the State Fair Photography Competition would not be possible without the generosity of the volunteers (both IPPG Members and our Friends) assisting in the setup, judging coordination, and hosting the gallery in the Indiana Arts Building at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. IPPG wishes to thank all our hard working volunteers for their time and effort in making this annual event the best ever.

Coordination and curation of the Indiana State Fair Photography Competition and Image Gallery each year by the Indianapolis Professional Photographers' Guild would not be  possible without the continued sponsorship of:

American Color Imaging (ACI) and Roberts Camera.
