Head On Photo Festival is the leading photography organisation in Australia. The annual festival is run by Head On Foundation, a not for profit organisation which provides a multi-faceted platform for nationally and internationally acclaimed artists as well as emerging talent across all genres of photography.
The centrepiece of the festival are the Head On Photo Awards, and the Head On Portrait Prize, Australia’s most critically acclaimed photographic portrait prize. Head On works collaboratively with public institutions, education providers, commercial galleries, professional bodies, businesses and local councils.
The festival attracts tens of thousands of visitors from across Australia to over 200 events at more than 100 venues across Sydney. The festival is unique in that it provides opportunities for thousands of artists to meet, exhibit and sell work.
Head On has put Sydney on the global map as a centre for photography.
