Be a part of what everyone is talking about! 
Join us at the MPI Organization, home of the International Image Challenge.


At the Master Photographers International Organization, there are no annual fees. Our structure allows members to pay only for what they use. Members of any level can stay inspired or continue to grow to higher levels within the MPI International Photographic Degree Program.  

Members can work through the MPI Program at their own pace. The degree program allows for one jumpstart option which must be accessed within the first year of membership. If successful, this option facilitates a member to start at their level as a craftsman or a master in one of the six categories.   

Members can also earn all their degree points by entering the annual International Image Challenge. We have allowed our members to have choices.
