About the IVRPA

International VR Photography Association

The IVRPA is an international association of professionals who create and produce 360° interactive, immersive images, also called 360° panoramas. Our members include professional photographers, programmers, web developers, designers, software developers, hardware manufactors, artists and enthusiasts, who produce and use 360° imaging techniques.

Mission Statement

The IVRPA mission is to promote the success of Professional VR Photographers. We strive to develop and support the professional and artistic uses of 360° panoramas, image based VR and related technologies worldwide through education, networking opportunities, manufacturer alliances, marketing assistance, and technical support of our member's work.


The IVRPA was founded originally as the IQTVRA, the International QuickTimeVR Association. The association was incorporated in the state of California on December 7th, 1998. In December 2004, the association changed their name to IVRPA to reflect our broadening technological field of immersive interactive imaging and was incorporated in the state of Massachusetts, USA.
The IVRPA is currently recognized by the USA IRS as a tax-exempt, nonprofit corporation under the 501(c)(3) section of the Internal Revenue Code.


In July 2006, the IVRPA launched its new community website. This website is the hub of the IVRPA community, and showcases work of its members to the audience at large. The website is built on the open source Drupal platform. It was build and is maintained by IVRPA members for IVRPA members.
