The Ballarat International Foto Biennale is seeking entries from photographic artists working in the Asia Pacific region to the The Fineman New Photography Award 2021.

The award aims to seek photographers whose work is beginning to receive critical attention and deserves to be seen by international audiences. A selection of up to six artists will receive an exhibition within the 2021 Biennale Core Program alongside other finalists and receive 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 AUD $10,000 to an overall winner, with an extra AUD $1,000 being awarded the People’s Choice Award, as voted by the public. Applications will close at 11:59 p.m. AEST on 23 April 2021. Selected finalists will be contacted on 1 June 2021. Click here for full details.
