12 Jan Queensland Festival of Photography Portrait Prize
CALL FOR ENTRIES
Photographers of all ages are invited to submit their photographic portraits for a chance to win the first Queensland Festival of Photography Portrait Prize.
The Queensland Festival of Photography Portrait Prize is a celebration of photographic portraiture in all it’s forms, whether it is constructed around an idea, positioned in a specific environment, a candid snap or experimental.
Portrait photography has been around since the invention and popularization of the camera, and with today’s digital and phone cameras and rise of social media sites, taking and sharing portraits is bigger than ever. This prize aims to encourage the production of the best and most innovative photographic portraits, and share them online and in the Queensland Centre for Photography gallery!
Fifty finalists will be presented in an online exhibition, out of which twenty finalists will be selected for exhibition in the QCP Window Gallery from 1 April to 29 April 2012. The winner of the Head 2 Head Prize will be announced at the opening of the exhibition at QCP on Sunday 1 April 2012.
The judges in 2012 are Dr Victoria Garnons-Williams, Senior lecturer, QUT, artist and QCP Board Member; Richard Muldoon, Photographer; and Maurice Ortega, Director, QCP.
