Head On is the nation's leading exhibition showcasing the best Australian portrait photography. Now in its sixth year, the show includes the work of 40 finalists, competing for prizes worth approximately $37000.
This year's competition judges are Magnum photographer Trent Parke, multi award winning photographer Narelle Autio, Good Weekend magazine picture editor Judith Love, and Head On Curator Moshe Rosenzveig. Winners will be announced at the exhibition opening at the Australian Centre for Photography.
The show's main selection criteria are the quality and impact of the image, rather than the celebrity of the photographer or subject. As a result Head On is regarded by many as the most critically important photographic portrait prize in the country.
