Head On Photo Festival’s signature show the ‘Portrait Prize was established in 2004, at a time when Australia was producing many more photographic talents than it did opportunities for them to exhibit. The work was selected without the artists’ names and The Head On Portrait Prize quickly became Australia’s leading competition for photographic portraiture challenging accepted perceptions of the genre, the structure of photography competitions and paving the way to uncover new talent.
Over the years, The Awards evolved into three categories - Portrait, Landscape, and Mobile. A diverse group of creative industry practitioners select work without artists’ names so the judging focusses on merit. Each year the panel changes ensuring a fresh perspective for each category.
The selection panel for 2014 was: Sam Barzilay, Anne-Marie Van de Ven, Polixeni Papapetrou, Murray Fredericks, Chris Rainier, Alison Stieven Taylor, Olivier Laurent, Benjamin Lowy, James Cottam, Moshe Rosenzveig OAM.
