2016 Assistants & Emerging Photographer Award Exhibition Opening

The 2016 finalists for the Assistants and Emerging Photographer Award Exhibition will be presented at SUNSTUDIOS Sydney on Thursday 8 September 2016.

Please join us in celebrating the finalists in this year’s Assistants & Emerging Photographer Award exhibition.

The Assistants & Emerging Photographer Award is one of Australia’s most recognised photography awards. The award opening is significant in the industry, discovering new creative talent and providing the finalists with exposure to industry leaders in attendance on the opening night. 

Every year SUNSTUDIOS delivers a new group of judges, the best in the photographic industry, to review the submissions and ultimately select the winner among the finalists. The winner and the runner up selected by judges, based on outstanding interpretation of this year’s theme ‘Free’ in a stills photographic form, will be announced on the opening night.

This year’s judges:

Ingvar Kenne – Renowned Photographer and member of the Pool Collective

Jane Robinson – Senior Photographic Producer

Sally Brownbill – Creative Director and Founder of The Brownbill Effect

This year the winner of the Assistants and Emerging Photographer Award will receive $4,000 “Canon dollars” to be spent on any Canon product at SUNSTUDIOS, and the runner up will receive a Broncolor Siros 400 L Outdoor Kit 2 valued at RRP $4,400.

The People’s Choice Award will also be running throughout the exhibition period until 25 September 2016.
