Entries are now open for the Bowness Photography Prize.

Established in 2006, the William and Winifred Bowness Photography Prize promotes excellence in photography across all photographic media and stylistic genres by both established and emerging artists with work produced within the last year.

The prize has become an important survey of contemporary photographic practice and one of the most prestigious in the country, providing Australian artists with the opportunity to exhibit at one of Australia's leading public galleries.

Since 2017 the prize has been acquisitive and the $30,000 cash prize awarded to the winner ensures that it continues to provide a significant boost to an artist’s career.

for 2019, the Sotheby’s Australia People’s Choice Award has been doubled from $2,500 to $5,000.
