2019 TIPA award winners announced

Back in March the General Assembly of the Technical Image Press Association gathered in Bangkok, Thailand, to vote on the best imaging products of 2019

The TIPA World Awards sees nominations gathered by the TIPA Technical Committee, who test and evaluate the selected gear while considering new categories and emerging imaging trends. A list of finalists is then compiled and sent to the editors of TIPA member publications worldwide, which included our very own Will Cheung, editor of Photography News. The winners have now finally been revealed, and you can find them below…
