The Museum of Australian Photography is inviting artists with still photo-based works created in the past year to enter the annual William and Winifred Bowness Photography Prize contest.

This major competition has emerged as an important annual survey of contemporary photographic practice in Australia and one of the most respected prizes in the country. The winning work will be awarded $30,000 and will be acquired into MAPh’s nationally significant collection of Australian photographs. One artist will also be selected for the $10,000 Wai Tang Commissioning Award which will coincide with the 2024 Bowness Photography Prize exhibition season. The Smith & Singer People’s Choice Award will be voted by the public with the recipient receiving $5,000.

Entries close at 5:00 p.m. (AEST) on Wednesday 14 June, 2023. Click here for more information.
