2016 Clip Award

My photograph Black Springs #3154, from 2015, has been selected as a finalist in the 2016 CLIP Awards, hosted by the Perth Centre for Photography. The exhibition runs from 18 March - 17 April 2016. Given how many portraiture awards exist in the Australian photography realm - the Olive Cotton award, Head On (yes, I know they’ve added a landscape category in recent years), the National Photographic Portrait Prize, and the Martin Kantor Portrait Prize -  I love that this award exists, even if the prize money is modest compared to the others, and hope that PCP sustains it.

2014 Nikon-Walkley Awards for Excellence in Photojournalism

In September I joined David Dare ParkerJack Picone, Renee Nowytarger, and Getty Images Australia’s Stuart Hannagan in the Redfern offices of the Media Entertainment & Arts Alliance to select the finalists and winners in the 2014 Nikon-Walkley Awards for Excellence in Photojournalism. Congratulations to all finalists, the standard in Australian press photography remains high despite tough industry conditions. Special congratulations to Andrew Quilty/Oculi who took out both major awards.

Andrew Quilty’s striking ‘Baby Burn Victim in Boost Hospital’ photo has been named the 2014 Nikon-Walkley Photo of the Year.
