MGA Call for entries
Entries now invited
The MGA Foundation has announced two changes to the 2017 William and Winifred Bowness Photography Prize: an increased prize of $30,000 for the winning work and, for the first time in the history of the prize, MGA will acquire the winning entry.
‘The prize money goes to one individual rather than being distributed through a range of different nominations and commendations, which often happens with prizes. It’s a sum of money that can actually make a significant difference to one artist’s working life,’ said Stephen Zagala, MGA Senior Curator and 2017 judge.
This year’s panel consists of Australian architect, art patron and academic Corbett Lyon, artist and educator Dr Susan Fereday, and MGA Senior Curator Stephen Zagala.
Entries open: 31 May 2017 – (5pm) 12 July 2017
Finalists announced: 28 August 2017
Exhibition dates: 14 October – 26 November 2017
Opening and announcement: Thursday 19 October 2017
