Check out the 40 finalists and winning portraits in the 13th iteration of this annual survey of Australian portrait photography
A flagship event of the annual Head On Photo Festival, the Head On Portrait Prize reflects the range and depth of the medium as it is practiced in Australia, with past finalists reading like a who's-who of of our photographic scene.
The judges for the 2016 Head On Photo Awards are American photographer Michael Grecco; Feature Shoot editor-in-chief Alison Zavos; gallerist Michael Reid; and Head On Photo Festival director Moshe Rosenzveig.
Parallel to the main Portrait Prize are exhibitions of the Head On Mobile Prize category, for smartphone photogtraphy; and the Head On Student Prize, for primary and secondary school students.
NB Entry to the Museum of Sydney is, as usual, $10 for adults – but pick up a Head On Photo Festival program for a coupon that will get you in for $5.
