Head On Photo Awards 2020

ENTER CONTEST

Three winners per category will win prizes from a $70,000 prize pool, including $30,500 in cash.

The Head On Photo Awards represent a global selection of the best work from emerging and established photographers across three categories; Portrait, Landscape and Student.

Head On Photo Festival, one of the world’s most prestigious photo festivals is calling for photographers to submit work to the Head On Photo Awards 2020.

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).

Our anonymous judging ensures each work is selected solely on its merit rather than the celebrity of the photographer.

Winners and finalists receive excellent exposure through extensive media coverage. Over 2000 people attended the 2019 Head On Photo Festival launch, where the Head On Photo Awards winners were announced by the Arts Minister.

The Head On Photo Awards exhibitions receive extensive visitation across two Sydney venues; the Head On Photo Festival Hub, and Paddington Reservoir Gardens.
