Head On

Head on Foundation invites photographers to submit works to the 2012 photographic portrait competition. Entries close 11 March 2012.

MGA Gallery Director Shaune Lakin joins photographer Tamara Dean, ABC broadcaster and collector Robbie Buck and Head On curator Moshe Rosenzveig to judge this years prize.

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. Images can range from film to digitally produced using any photographic technique in colour and/or black & white.

Further prizes will be awarded to images selected for ‘The Critic’s Prize’ and for ‘People’s Choice’.

Total value of prizes is approx $50,000.

Portrait Prize Finalists will have the cost of printing their work covered by Head On and Pixel Perfect, whilst also receiving NIK DFine Software valued at $150. A complete list of prizes will be announced shortly.

Head On finalists will be exhibited at the Australian Centre for Photography, Sydney 4 May - 3 June 2012.

Head On, now in its nineth year, has established itself as one of Australia's major photographic portrait exhibitions. It is committed to advancing photography as a popular art form and to supporting photographers from all genres through its exhibition and other related activities.
