VIGEX is a biennial salon, conducted under the patronage of both the Australian Photographic Society (APS) and the world governing body of exhibition photography, the International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP). It also receives the support of Victorian Association of Photographic Societies (VAPS).
VIGEX has been running successfully since its inception in 1980.
The salon is exhibited at the historic Geelong Art Gallery for four weeks.
It is normally held every two years and is open to both professional and amateur photographers.
All Committee members are unpaid volunteers.
