SPDA (Singapore Photographic & Digital Imaging Trade Association) is a non-profit organization with a 60 year history is built to collaborate with local and overseas photography business partners in promoting innovation and technology.
In the last few years, we were recognised as the official representative for WPC (World Photographic Cup). Since then, our local photographers have been participating in WPC. It is an international platform for our members to showcase their expertise.
In 2017, two Singaporeans did the nation proud by clinching the First prize in the Reportage Category and another won the TOP 10 in the wedding category.
And in 2018, a photographer did our nation proud again by clinching the prestigious first prize in the Wedding category.
A Governing Committee has been created to conduct the ongoing affairs of the competition, also supported by UAPP (United Asian Professional Photography) and AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography). The brotherhood and sisterhood of photography is a bond that transcends language, culture, and geography.
To date, there are 33 countries participating in the World Photographic Cup.

Singapore Photographic & Digital Imaging Trade Association
The Singapore Photographic & Digital Imaging Trade Association started way back in the end of the 19th Century and flourished at the turn of the century. After World War II, the photographic industry resumed its activity and sees photo equipment businesses and photo studios began to bloom. It has since progressed from an individual association in 1960 till today a government-recognized trade association.
