Photo Collective is dedicated to discovering, promoting and encouraging original, thought-provoking and diverse imagery produced by Australian photographers. We achieve this through award recognition, publications, community engagement initiatives, exhibitions and an educational program. We are proud to represent the changing face of Australian photography.
