Bowness Photography Prize 2024: entries now open!
The Museum of Australian Photography (MAPh) invites artists at all stages of their career to submit still photo-based media including analogue and digital photography created over the last year for consideration. The winning work will be awarded $30,000 and will be acquired into MAPh’s nationally significant collection of Australian photographs. One artist will also be selected for the $10,000 Wai Tang Commissioning Award which will coincide with the 2025 Bowness Photography Prize exhibition season. The People’s Choice Award will be voted by the public, with the recipient receiving $5,000.
Over the last 18 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. The MAPh Foundation recognises the importance of supporting practising artists, and the positive impact the prize money for both the winner and People’s Choice Award will have on the recipients.
