The 2016 Head On Photo Festival opens in Sydney next week, with a wide variety of displays, workshops and other events.


Run as a non-profit venture, the annual festival is dedicated to promoting the work of photographers at all stages of their careers, encouraging excellence and innovation, making photography accessible to all and raising awareness of important issues through photography.   It has earned a reputation of operating with integrity and providing all photo-artists invaluable opportunities to exhibit in Sydney and internationally.

The main activities include the  Head On Awards for Portrait, Landscape, Mobile and Student photographic prizes, which will be on display throughout the festival. Full details of events and venues can be found at
