By Sarah Bartlett

This year the Australian Photographic Society (APS) has created a new award for photographers nationwide. The winners were announced at Docklands’ Magnet Galleries on July 4.

The Australian Conceptual Photography Prize (ACPP) aims to promote emerging conceptual photographers from across Australia.

Conceptual photography is photography that illustrates a specific, pre-conceived idea.

The idea could be simplistic, such as themes of happiness or sadness, or it could take on something more complex such as existential issues or gender identities.

The winner was Otways photographer Deb Gartland and her photograph Self Reflection. Ms Garland was also awarded the prize for best entry by a member of the Australian Photographic Society (APS).

Second prize was awarded to Brisbane photographer Anne Pappadarlo for her photograph When the son becomes a father.

There were over 100 entries submitted and 39 images by 29 photographers were selected as finalists by a judging panel. The panel included head of the school of Art and Design at ANU Denise Ferris, curator of photography at the National Gallery of Victoria Anne O’Hehir and renowned contemporary photographer Roger Skinner.

The finalists’ exhibitions were displayed at Magnet Galleries from July 4 to 29.

Ms Garland received $8000 for the ACPP and $2000 for the best entry prize by an APS member. Ms Pappadarlo received a $500 voucher from Emergent Designs for second prize.

Magnet Galleries Melbourne Inc. is a not-for-profit and aims to preserve and celebrate the best of Australian photography as well as embolden emerging photographers.
