The 2017 AIPP Professional Photographic Awards season is well in swing.
Our fine art printing department has a great record of success when printing for entrants, we have worked for category winners at both state and national level. Whilst the awards are about the image, the embodiment of that image is the print.
The awards judging is held under very specific lighting designed to show up every flaw of an image, and print quality is an important consideration in judging. This we can help you with.
You can book time with David or Miriam to prepare your image for print, we can print on the most suitable paper and mount and matt it to awards' standards.
Our 2017 AIPP awards pricing.
If you are an Atkins Pro customer, for $105 per entry we will:
- check for digital blemishes / artwork
- check for textural consistancy
- check for adequate resolution of files
- general advice on final image selections
- giclee fine art print at 8x12" or smaller
- award specification sized matt board
- award specification sized foamcore backing
Alternatively, you are welcome to book time with David or Miriam, where these issues will be addressed together at a cost of $40 per 15minutes. The print, matt and mount cost will then be at our professional pricing rates, which equates to around $80 per entry.
These prices are available up until Thursday June 1st at 5pm CST. If you submit your images to us after this, we most likely will be able to get them done in time, but the discount will not apply, and possibly rush rates may apply.

A word about the SAPPAs.
The Epson AIPP SA Professional Photography Awards are an excellent way to learn about modern photography and image making. At all of the events around the awards there is rigorous discussion of what makes a successful image. Just sitting in the audience at the feedback nights, or during the judging will be an incredibly rewarding experience.
Non members are welcome at most events, please contact AIPP organisers if you want more information.
Atkins also stocks the AIPP print cases, they cost $140.00 (incl GST). They hold around 6 matted prints, you get them back afterwards, they are very durable and will last forever.
Eventually they will be covered in entry stickers and filled with years of hopes and dreams, they become a loved old friend :).
