With a studio based in Fremantle, it’s hard to miss the excitement being generated by the Fremantle Portrait Prize! If you’re into portrait photography big time, then you need to give the Fremantle Portrait Prize some serious thought.
The Fremantle Portrait Prize promotes excellence in the art of portrait photography while raising funds for Arthritis and Osteoporosis Western Australia. By participating in the Fremantle Portrait Prize you can help vital work in the prevention and treatment of arthritis which occurs across all age groups, from children to the elderly. With noted Aussie photographer, Ken Duncan, as its patron, this looks like it’s going to be one of WA’s most significant portrait photography awards in 2012.
Entry is easy (and only costs $15 per submission, and you can submit up to three entries). First, you upload low to mid resolution digital entries via the Freo Portrait Prize website – for pre-selection by a panel of judges. If your entry is short-listed, then you simply provided a high-resolution image which will be printed by organisers for judging. Simply!
This is a great opportunity for photographers to have their best portraits on exhibition – as short-listed images will be exhibited at the Moore Building Gallery from October 6 – 21.
