About Us...

img_17Formed in 1950, the National Photographic Art Society serves the photographic community in Sri Lanka in an extraordinary manner. A brainchild of the Late Mr. Wilson Hegoda, the Society initially catered for the Sinhala speaking photographer community, and later initiated photography classes not only to its members, but also to the students from schools across the country, free; as a community project and then leading on to a recognized Diploma.

The NPAS is affiliated to the Federation Internationale de L’Art Photographique (FIAP); recognized as the world body for photography and the NPAS acts as its authorized representative, besides also being affiliated as a member of the Photographic Society of America (PSA), and qualifies members in the award of Associateships and Fellowships.

The society, while being recognized as a non profitable entity by the Government, is a registered body as a Limited Liability company and is administered by a board of directors and is presently actively involved in the conduct of educational and community related programs such as regular classes, workshops, seminars and excursions. The Annual International Exhibition is a highlight of the society and attracts photographic creations from all over the world, in addition to the hundreds of characteristic photographic creations from the Sri Lankan photographers.
