Entries have opened for this year’s Head On Photo Awards, with a prize pool of more than AU$60,000 in cash and product up for grabs.


Photographers can submit images in four categories: Portrait, Landscape, Mobile and Student.

An entry fee of AU$30 per images applies to the Portrait, Landscape and Mobile competitions, with a $1 fee per image for entering the Student Prize, which is open to Australian students in the K-12 school years.

Finalists selected in all four contests will be exhibited at the Festival Hub (Portrait, Mobile and Student Prizes) or the NSW Parliament (Landscape Prize) at no additional cost to the photographers.

These exhibitions may also tour to international festivals.

The deadline for entries is 11:00 pm on Sunday, 25 February (Sydney time).
