Each year, editors from the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) member magazines meet for their General Assembly to vote for the best photo and imaging products launched by the industry in the last 12 months. In 2016, the voting took place during the General Assembly that was held on 1st April in San Francisco, USA.
