Contact Exhibition: National Photography Prize

Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA) proudly presents the biennial National Photography Prize, a showcase of the best contemporary artists working in photography today.

Since 1983, the National Photography Prize has invited applications from artists across Australia, bringing the best contemporary artists working in photography to Albury. With a $30,000 first prize, and $5,000 fellowship for an emerging artist, proudly supported by the MAMA Art Foundation.

This year's finalists represent a broad range of interests, including First Nations relationships to Country and storytelling, artists’ personal histories, families, communities and languages, environmental and climate action, the history of photography and agitations for the medium’s future.

Featuring work by finalists Amos Gebhardt, Caitlin E. Littlewood, Dean Cross, Dennis Golding, Guy Grabowsky, Janet Laurence, Kate Mitchell, Kiron Robinson, Luke Parker, Robert Fielding, Sara Oscar, and Tiyan Baker.

The National Photography Prize is the major exhibition of the Autumn season, and one of 6 exhibitions currently on show at the museum. Open 363 days per year, museum and exhibition entry is free. Check out the events calendar for artist talks, kids activities, classes and workshops.
