Head On Photo Awards until 31 May 2021

Deadline: 31 May 2021. The Head On Photo Awards 2021 are now open to international professional, emerging and enthusiastic photographers.

Finalists have the chance to win from a prize pool of $70,000, including $30,000 in cash.

The Head On Portrait and Landscape Awards are open internationally to professional, emerging and enthusiast photographers from classical to contemporary styles and the Head On Student Award is open to Australia’s young photographers (school years K-12).

Entries are judged anonymously by a panel of internationally acclaimed professionals to ensure work is selected solely on its merit, not the celebrity of the photographer. The finalists will be exhibited as a part of the Head On Photo Festival 2021.
