The Institute of Photographic Technology, Incorporated (IPT) was founded in Melbourne, Australia in 1946. The Institute was a founding member of the Ian Clunies Ross Memorial Foundation.

The Institute exists for the encouragement, advancement and application of technical and scientific photography in science and the arts. The aim of the Institute is to provide a forum for professional networking through presentations, demonstrations, discussions and debate. To achieve these aims, general meetings and special events are held each year.

We encourage participation and presentations from people with diverse interests. Meetings are open to members and guests. If you are interested in the Institute, please feel free to attend one of our meetings.
