Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition
Celebrating the Strength of Culture

Celebrating the Strength of Culture

One of Australia’s leading Aboriginal photographers A. Professor Wayne Quilliam encourages Indigenous people across the globe to enter a photographic competition dedicated to the preservation of culture.
Sinchi’s inaugural photography competition provide a unique opportunity for visual story tellers around the world to be recognised for their talent and commitment to the preservation of culture and indigenous rights. The competition will be judged by world acclaimed photographers Wayne Quilliam, Jimmy Nelson and Laura Beltran Villamizar.
The aim of the competition is to celebrate the strength and beauty of indigenous culture through visual storytelling. This can be inspired by many things from activism, relationship to nature, spirituality, community, everyday life to art, music and cultural practice.
“Over the past month, I have launched exhibitions in New York, Berlin and Melbourne visualising Indigenous women. Every photograph projected the aesthetics of culture, and what is embedded in our psyche; surrealism, totemic tribalism even introspective discovery creating subjective visualisations. This ‘competition’ encourages our storytellers to share their individual perspectives of culture which may lead to developing their own exhibitions” says Quilliam.
The challenge is for all of us to care enough about what lies outside our own world, so we can recover what is nearly lost…Our distinguished jury will select an overall competition winner, 3 x runners up and award an Artistic Merit Award (for the best individual photo).
Participants are invited to submit up to 6 photos with accompanying captions and welcome submissions from both remote and urban indigenous communities.
Overall Winner – 1000 euros / Jimmy Nelson Online Talk or Workshop / Native Agency Portfolio Review / Press Exposure / Featured on Website and Social media / Work shown in Amsterdam Gallery / Prints made available online (subject to agreement of the photographer).
Runner Ups – 200 euros / Press Exposure / Featured on Website and Social media / Work shown in Amsterdam Gallery.
Artistic Merit – 300 euros / Wayne Quilliam Online Talk or Workshop / Native Portfolio Review / Press Exposure / Featured on Website and Social media / Work shown in Amsterdam Gallery / Prints made available online (subject to agreement of the photographer).
