Head On Photographer Call for Entries
Head on Foundation invites Australian photographers to submit images to the 2009 photographic portrait competition. Prizes will be awarded for the best 3 images. The selection of images will be done anonymously based on the power of the photograph rather than the celebrity of the subject or photographer. Further prizes will be awarded to images selected for 'The Critic's Prize' and for 'People's Choice.'
Finalists' work will be selected by Magnum photographer Trent Parke, Award winning Photographer Narelle Autio, Good Weekend picture editor Judith Love and Head On curator Moshe Rosenzveig. The 'Critic’s Prize' will be selected by the Sydney Morning Herald photography critic Robert McFarlane.
The exhibition is open to all artists residing in Australia. Entry fee of $25 per image is non-refundable (for up to three images). Total value of prizes is approximately $37,000. Deadline for submission is 22 March 2009 at 11 p.m. (EDT). Visit the site to learn more.
