The TIPA Award is presented annually by 28 prestigious photography magazines for a number of different categories. In each category, a jury of experts chooses the best product or service from a multitude of contenders. In 2013, WhiteWall prevailed as the best photo service. The judges were convinced by WhiteWall’s high quality and large product selection, as well as the ability to choose the size of your product to the exact centimetre. Numerous new products and the finishings, such as the included hanging system, also counted towards the excellent rating.
