The annual SUNSTUDIOS Emerging Photographer Award (SEPA) unearths and extends the skills of our next generation of professional photographers by providing a platform for excellence in the medium of photography.
For its eleventh year, the Award continues to offer a generous $25K in prizes across four categories, resourcing recipients through the next stage of their careers.
Entries are invited from all states and territories within Australia during the search for the nation's brightest new talent. The competition is free to enter until midnight, Monday 19 August.
Entrants will have their work anonymously judged by some of Australia's finest photographers and industry professionals, including leading photo editors and commissioning agents.
This culminates in an exhibition of the finalists work launching at SUNSTUDIOS Sydney's Atrium gallery on 19 September where the overall winner, runner up and highly commended prizes will be announced. It later travels to the Skylight Gallery at SUNSTUDIOS Melbourne. Image © Marcus Coblyn
