Australian Photographic Society launches conceptual photography prize
The Australian Photographic Society (APS) has announced a new initiative aimed at promoting the work of conceptual photographers.
The Australian Conceptual Photography Prize (ACPP) features an acquisitive prize in partnership with Melbourne's Magnet Galleries and a $10,000 prize pool.
To qualify for the ACPP, images must be a still work that has been substantially produced by photographic means, including analogue and digital photography, collage and mixed media, and be accompanied by an artist's statement.
The ACPP winner will be awarded a cash prize of $8,000, and the winner of the best entry by an APS Member will receive $2,000. If the winner is an APS Member then that entrant will receive both cash amounts – totalling $10,000.
The ACPP is acquisitive; meaning the printed winning framed artwork that is awarded the ACPP Prize will immediately become the property of Magnet Galleries, which are partnering with the APS and will be exhibiting the finalists' prints.
The winners will be announced on Thursday 4 July 2019 at the opening of the exhibition.
