The Head On Photo Festival, Australia’s leading international annual photograph event, has announced the winners of this year’s Head On Photo Awards. The annual awards celebrate excellence in three categories – Portrait, Landscape and Student – and are judged anonymously by a panel of internationally recognised photographers, editors and industry leaders. The winners were announced on May 1 as part of the Head On(line) Photo Festival digital launch.

Offering a prize pool of $70,000 to professional and amateur photographers around the world, the Head On Photo Awards are made doubly attractive to entrants given that they tour finalist exhibitions internationally at festival’s end.
