Entries have opened for the 2021 GradFoto award, which is open to emerging contemporary artists from selected institutions whose artistic practice utilises photography.

Following the award’s launch last year, GradFoto 2021 will continue to showcase the high calibre of photographic work by up and coming graduates to new audiences across Australia and beyond, creating connections for them as they begin their artistic careers.  All applicants will have their submissions reviewed by the distinguished judging panel. Up to 20 finalists will be shortlisted and have their work exhibited online in the GradFoto 2021 exhibition.

Judges will award one cash prize of AU$500 to the overall winner. Another finalist will be awarded one cash prize of AU$200 for the People’s Choice Award, as voted by the public throughout the GradFoto 2021 exhibition.

Entry into the competition is free of charge but applications will close on 17 December 2021, at 11.59 pm AEDT. Finalists will be contacted on 18 January ahead of the launch of the online exhibition and winner’s announcement on 28 January, 2022. Click here for more information.
