Winners Announced | Opening Night | Assistant & Emerging Photographer Awards
October 4, 2013
Sydney crowds packed into SUNSTUDIOS on the 27th September for the opening of the 4th Assistant & Emerging Photographer Awards.
Synonymous with celebrating the creative flair and innovative talent of emerging photographers in the Australian industry; in 2013, the awards asked photographers to submit images to the theme of 'Movement'. Over a thousand people attend the opening night, many of them high profile leaders in the arts, media, fashion, entertainment and creative industries, celebrating the successes of the up-and-coming industry photographers.
The winner and runner-up, announced on the opening night, were chosen by a team of judges including, Jason McLean - Director, Canon Consumer Imaging, Jane Robinson - Producer The Artist Group, Inez Garcia - Fashion Stylist & Creative Consultant, Toby Burrows - Photographer, and Nicole Bentley - Photographer.
The 2013 Assistant & Emerging Photographer Award was won by Ashlea Skyes and Jeremy Shaw was announced as the runner-up. This year Canon Australia has supported a People's Choice award, which has also recently been won by Yasmin Mund.
Genres often known for being grand and imposing, the imagery of 2019 SEPA Landscape and Architecture finalists is instead gentle, strange and subtle. The judges have selected Debbie Gallulo, Ashley Ludkin and Matt Solomon as three artists with strong perspective on our built and natural environment.
Pratley’s series of SEPA 2018 portraits grew organically out of encounters in daily life with people, a reminder that people you walk past every day often hold valuable experience. His images are an education in adversity and how to continue on.
