The International Bridge Press Association is for bridge media peoples benefit.  The main benefit of being a member is that you get access to a network consisting of 300 useful fellow members in all corners of the world and thereby prime access to news and views.

Another benefit is the awards for the best bidding, play, etc. The winners get prizes, and the other members get good copy. IBPA cooperates with the Hainan Bridge Festival (HBF). This cooperation gives many advantages to members, see further the Award Benefits document and the recap of the Awards ceremony in 2018.
