Australian Photography Awards 2020


APA is one of the most celebrated photographic competitions in Australia. Since launching in 2016 we continue to discover Australia’s most original and thought-provoking photography. We celebrate diversity and feel photography is a powerful medium for bringing people together and promoting understanding. Each year we reward emerging talent alongside some of Australia’s most established photographers.

In 2020 we are excited to offer eight diverse categories including Portrait, Landscape, Wildlife / Animal, Documentary, Travel / Street & Open / Illustrative alongside Student and Junior (13 and under). We extend a huge prize pool of cash & cameras along with the opportunity to have your work published and considered by a committee of some of Australia’s best visual artists.

Entries begin at AUD$28 per image with discount packages available.

Opening 17 August – Closing 26 October. No extended deadlines
