Recognition by the ACCC of Accredited Professional Photographer (APP)

October 21, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

On September 18th 2015 the ACCC (Australian Competition & Consumer Commission) formally recognised the status of an “Accredited Professional” through the award of a “Certification Trade Mark”

                  

An Australian first, this certification enables the AIPP’s 2,000 accredited members to offer clients and customers further reassurance of their competence and reliability as a working photographer or video producer through a certified ‘symbol of trust’ from the ACCC. 

As the photographic industry is not held accountable to the same legal status and regulatory requirements as other Government and state-regulated professions, the ACCC certification of the AIPP accreditation process brings a new level of authority to practicing professionals, in addition to the set of voluntary requirements that AIPP accredited professionals already adhere to.

The AIPP accreditation process has three components

1. Business and experience pre requisite which must be met before applying for accreditation.

2. An assessment of a photographers image making standards and capability. 

3. A continuing professional development obligation. Maintaining up to date skills and business practices each year.

 The AIPP continually monitors its accreditation requirements to ensure that the standard for accredited membership is appropriate for the profession of photography and the profession of video production, now and in the future.
