VIP Application

The VIP application process opens in the fall each year and applications are considered in the early spring of the following year. If you have submitted an application and not yet received notice from AIPAD, then your application is still under review. After March 1, you may still submit an application for consideration, but AIPAD cannot guarantee its review in advance of the Show.

AIPAD will not consider VIP requests submitted through other channels. Submitting an application does not guarantee VIP status. By submitting an application, you agree to join AIPAD’s mailing list.

If you have been invited as a VIP, you will receive a username and password in March  to view full program information and to register for special, invitation-only events being held throughout the city of New York. Please contact AIPAD at or +1-202-367-1158 if you have any questions about your VIP status or login credentials. We look forward to welcoming you to The Photography Show!


Private Curator Tours

Private tours are available for VIPs and curator-led groups.

Curator groups must have a leader – one curator or museum administrator for each group, not to exceed 15 people total. Groups are granted access to the Show at 11:00 a.m. on the day of the scheduled tour. Tours are self-guided and dealers will be present. For security reasons, each group is asked to stay together.
