Established as both an exhibition and award, the prize is awarded to a photographic artwork of a significant Australian and must be a portrait of a living individual distinguished in art, letters, science, sports or politics. The award is open to all photographers and photo media artists and provides the chance to have works displayed and viewed at the Ballarat International Foto Biennale from 23 August to 20 October 2019 in Ballarat. The acquisitive first prize of $15,000 is generously supported by the Dara Foundation and commemorates the late Martin Kantor, a photographer and philanthropist who was known for his arresting portraits of famous musicians and artists like Iggy Pop, Howard Arkley, painter Adam Cullen and conceptual artist Dale Frank..
