Over the last 16 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. In 2005 the MGA Foundation was established with the aim of supporting MGA and its significant collection, as well as its unique commitment to photographic art and in 2006 initiated the inaugural Bowness Photography Prize to promote excellence in photography and support contemporary artists working in the medium.
