CCP DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY AWARD
The CCP Documentary Photography Award is a biennial showcase of contemporary Australian documentary photography. Since the inaugural exhibition in 1997, this event has grown in profile and significance. It represents a unique, national initiative in support of documentary photography, providing a rare opportunity to assess the themes, styles and ideas that characterise this fascinating genre. This year's exhibition demonstrates the breadth of contemporary approaches to documentary practice from traditional black and white narratives through to vibrant colour recordings all of which have been achieved without digital manipulation. Themes range from Victoria's Black Saturday bushfires through to ocean swim racing and portraits of people having their haircut.
Judging Panel: Louise Adler AM CEO and Publisher-in-Chief, Melbourne University Publishing; Naomi Cass Director, Centre for Contemporary Photography; and Stephen Dupont Photographer
