Membership with the Australian Photographic Society caters for enthusiasts, amateurs and professionals in photography. Membership types are;

  • Membership for Australian residents
  • Membership for residents outside of Australia (OS)

Included in your membership are monthly e-News, Free Expressions, and The Printer, delivered electronically; as well as the option to add a group and access our online webfolios and photographic community. You may enter APS approved exhibitions and inhouse group competitions and activities. Discounted magazine subscriptions and APSCON registration.


The APS currently operates four groups for members to join. The groups are Print, Nature, Contemporary, and Audio-Visual. Joining a group gives you access to the webfolios for those which offer this - currently Nature Group. You may join as many or as few as you like, and all provide a range of services to assist their members. Please visit this link for further information.
