Finalist – 2015 Olive Cotton Award for Photographic Portraiture
It is with great excitement I am announcing being selected as a finalist for the 2015 Olive Cotton Award for Photographic Portraiture. I am deeply honoured to be included in this very talented list of photographers to exhibit at the Tweed Gallery.
The $20,000 biennial national award for excellence in photographic portraiture is dedicated to the memory of Olive Cotton, one of Australia’s leading twentieth century photographers. The winning work is acquired for the Gallery’s Collection.
In 2005 Tweed Regional Gallery launched the Olive Cotton Award for photographic portraiture, funded by Olive Cotton’s family and dedicated to her memory as one of Australia’s leading twentieth century photographers.
The Award has grown and gained national recognition attracting entries from well-known and emerging photographers across Australia. The 2015 award is to be judged by photographer Stephen Dupont.
