The VIGEX Committee conducts International Photographic Competitions and Exhibitions for Photographic Prints and Digital Projected Images in Geelong in the State of Victoria, Australia.
In odd numbered years the exhibition is a Print Salon and in even numbered years starting in 2016 it will be a Digital Projected Image Salon.
Each exhibition is conducted with approval from the Australian Photographic Society Inc., the Fédération Internationale de l'Art Photographique (the International Federation of Photographic Art) and the Photographic Society of America, in line with the requirements of these organisations.
It is also supported by the Victorian Association of Photographic Societies (VAPS).
VIGEX has been running successfully since its inception in 1980. The Victorian Government was the first sponsor, soon followed by the first major private sponsor, being Alcoa of Australia Limited. Many other local and national Australian sponsors have contributed over the years, including local municipal councils.
VIGEX is open to both professional and amateur photographers.
All VIGEX Committee members and helpers are unpaid volunteers.
