Photo Collective invites photographers to enter the 2021 Australian Photography Awards

Supported by

Since launching in 2016, APA has become an important space for the changing ways Australian photographers explore big ideas.

Each year, we call for original and thought-provoking photography. Photos can be taken anywhere in the world, just as long as the photographs are made by a person residing within Australia or any person living outside of Australia with Australian citizenship.

As an organisation which seeks meaning and hopes to promote understanding through photography, we endeavour to view imagery beyond its surface value, searching for layers and intent.

We search for work which pushes the boundaries of what a photograph can be. We welcome experimental, new and artful approaches to photography that may be overlooked in other awards. Read More.

Our eight diverse categories include:

Our 2021 committee is particularly interested in the new and exciting ways Australian photographers are approaching their practice. We encourage unique, artful and research driven approaches. When viewing work, we consider intent and meaning alongside technical ability.
