Deadline for submissions extended to 1 May 2019.
Focused on photographic artists working in the Asia Pacific region, the award is seeking photographers whose work is garnering critical acclaim and deserves to be seen by international audiences. The New Photography Award will identify up to 6 artists to be exhibited alongside other finalists in the BIFB 2019 Core Program, each receiving support from BIFB Associate Curator Aaron Bradbrook in the realisation of their exhibition.
All submissions will be reviewed by an international jury of leading curators and gallery directors including, Peggy Sue Amison, Artistic Director of East Wing; Jagdip Jagpal, Director of India Art Fair; Natalie King, acclaimed arts professional and curator of Tracey Moffat: My Horizons at 57th Venice Biennale; Gwen Lee, Founder of Singapore International Photography Festival; Celina Lunsford, Artistic Director Fotografie Forum Frankfurt; Jim Ramer, Director of MFA Photography at Parsons School of Design in New York; and Fiona Sweet, Artistic Director Ballarat International Foto Biennale.
Judges will award one cash prize of AUD $10,000 to the winner, with AUD$1000 awarded the Peoples Choice Award.
The New Photography Award is aligned with the Ballarat International Foto Biennale’s mission to be accessible to all and serve the community by playing a unifying role and creating a positive social impact.
