IPF photo prize submissions are now open

· Thursday October 6, 2016

Calling all Teller's and Testino's (no Terry's), the submissions the Independent Photography Festival's 2016 Photo Prize are now open. Whether you're a full time photographer or casual happy snapper, you're welcome to enter the competition, which is open internationally “with an emphasis on raw, engaging work of the highest quality”. You can submit up to two prints, which will be reviewed by the IPF organisers, curators and judges for consideration to be included in the show. All of the exhibited photos will be for sale by auction (with proceeds going directly to the artist), and will be eligible to win up to $5000 worth of prizes including a People's Choice award.

This year they're doing things a little differently. Submissions are to be made via their online submissions form and will be printed by IPF, Thirds Fine Art Printing and Canson Photographic Papers. So remember: no print submissions will be accepted this time.

Now in its fifth year, IPF was founded by Joe Miranda and co at the Hard Workers Club. Along with the prize there'll be another week-long program of solo and group exhibitions, screenings, talks and workshops across some of Melbourne’s best independent galleries and spaces from November 12th to 20th.
