Bowness Photography Prize - call for entries!

Over the last 15 years, the William and Winifred Bowness Photography Prize has emerged as an important annual survey of contemporary photographic practice in Australia and one of the most prestigious prizes in the country.

Entries are now open and MGA invites artists to submit photographic work created over the last year – a year that we will all never forget, with the shortlisted works exhibited at the gallery in September.

Entries close 5pm (AEST), Wednesday 30 June 2021.
