Since launching in 2016 APA has continually pushed the boundaries of originality, inclusiveness and diversity through a celebration of Australian photography.
We are proud of our rich history of discovering and amplifying emerging talent amidst some of Australia’s most established visual artists. In 2020 we continue our journey alongside an impressive committee of photographers, visual artists, photojournalists, picture editors, educators and curators to help us on our mission to become Australia’s most original, diverse and inclusive photographic organisation. Our 2020 categories include portrait, landscape, wildlife / animal, documentary, travel / street and open / illustrative along with student and junior (13 and under). This year we offer a massive prize pool of Nikon and Fujifilm cameras, Momento Pro vouchers, Kayell lighting kits and cash prizes along with the opportunity to have your work celebrated nationally through the APA Annual publication.
The rights of our entrants are at the forefront of everything we do at APA. This is why every entry is given full consideration regardless of notoriety or status and our terms and conditions put our entrants rights first.
Now more than ever we believe that photography is a powerful medium for bringing people together and promoting understanding. This year we are searching for photography that allows us to see the world from a unique perspective, photography which is original and honest, photography which challenges us and asks difficult questions, photography that tells us a bigger story.
