Head On Awards 2014

You are invited to submit to the Head On Awards 2014, as part of Australia’s largest photography festival. Head On Awards 2014 Now Open for Entries
Over $50,000 worth of prizes including $20,000 cash. This year, for the first time, choose from 4 categories (or enter them all!)

Winners for each category will be announced on Friday 16 May 2014 in Sydney.

10th Anniversary Head On Portrait Prize – open to residents of Australia only – 40 finalists will be exhibited during the festival and prizes will be awarded for the three best images

Landscape Prize – open internationally – ‘Landscape’ encompasses ‘large vista’ images of the natural environment, urban or industrial settings…or even a ‘scape’ not previously considered.

Multimedia Prize – open internationally – Head On is expecting the unexpected – short pieces composed of combinations of visual art, sound art, moving images or other media. This can be anything which incorporates photography and sits ‘outside the boxes’ of stills photography and short films.

Mobile Prize – open internationally – Rapidly changing mobile phone technology enables everyone with a mobile phone camera to spontaneously capture moments or to apply the skills of a classically trained photo-artist.
Winners for each category will be announced on Friday 16 May 2014 in Sydney.

All work is judged anonymously.Selection is based on the power of the work alone rather than the celebrity of the subject or its creator.
