Again, the Head On Photo Festival is being held throughout the Month of May in Sydney. The festival showcases works of Australian and International Artists in what is Australia's largest and most prestigious photography event. Established in 2008, it has become the second largest photography festival in the world. The Festival marks a vital place on the Australian Arts Calendar attracting highly acclaimed photographers as well as those that are newer to the scene. Held in Sydney over three weeks, it offers free events, workshops and exhibitions as well as talks by well-known and lesser known photographers.
Dedicated to encouraging innovation and excellence in photography, the Head On Festival also offers the Head On Awards for Portraiture, Landscape, Mobile and Student works. As a finalist again in 2017, I am honoured to have won Third Place in the Landscape Prize for my image of a Brumby in the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales. The Landscape Prize Exhibition consists of the 40 Finalists and is held at the NSW Parliament House from Monday the 8th of May through to the end of the month.
As part of the festival, I am also exhibiting in the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography) exhibition entitled "Storylines". I will be speaking about my work at the Paddington Town Hall on Sunday, the 12th of May at 3:20.
Finally, I am also an exhibitor in AddOn, a curated exhibition featuring anonymous small square prints..no names, no titles, lots of room for interpretation. This is also being held at the Paddington Town Hall, Festival Hub.
Thank you to all of those people who worked so hard to pull together the HeadOn Photographic Festival.
