The MGA is inviting artists to submit photographic work created over the last year for the prize, which awards $30,000 to the winner, whose image will be acquired into MGA’s nationally significant collection of Australian photographs. The Smith & Singer People’s Choice Award, which is run concurrently, will be voted by the public with the recipient receiving $5,000. This year’s judges will be MGA Director Anouska Phizacklea, artist Del Kathryn Barton and Karen Quinlan AM, Director of the National Portrait Gallery, Australia. A fee of AU$55 is charged for each entry, which may contain up to three images. (The fee covers administration and handling.) Click here for more information.
