In 2019 the Ballarat International Foto Biennale will launch a New Photography Award for photographic artists working in the Asia Pacific region.

This award will be open to photographers aged between 18-40, living in the Asia-Pacific region. It will focus on photographic artists whose work is beginning to receive critical attention and deserves to be seen by international audiences. A selection of up to 6 artists will each receive an exhibition within the 2019 BIFB Core Program; have their work showcased in a venue with other finalists, and receive one-on-one support from BIFB curators in the realisation of their exhibition. All applicants will have their submissions reviewed by an international jury of leading curators and gallery directors. Judges will award one cash prize of AU$10,000 to an overall winner, with an extra AU$1,000 being awarded the People’s Choice Award, as voted by the public.
