The 2018 Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize Exhibition will open on Wednesday 5 December at Moran Gallery in Sylvania. The exhibition showcases 30 finalists of this year’s competition, including emerging photographer and winner James Bugg. The free exhibition runs until 27 January 2019 and is open daily from 10am until 4pm.
“The work is rich and varied, photographs that resonate universally and speak of love and loss, struggle and achievement whilst others reveal both the curious and the mundane. Images share the political and the poetic, the intimate and the everyday.” said Cheryl Newman, international judge.
The Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize showcases the excellence of Australian photographers, increasing awareness and appreciation of Australian visual arts. Photographers are asked to interpret contemporary life in Australia. With a first prize of $50,000, the annual competition draws entries from Australia’s most highly regarded photographers as well as photographic enthusiasts from around the country. The Prizes are an initiative of the Moran Arts Foundation, a charitable organisation who is a major supporter of the arts in Australia.
