SUNSTUDIOS 2019 Emerging photographer award exhibition

Annual showcase of Australia's best new talent in photography

From hundreds of submissions across Australia, a blind judging process has chosen the strongest twelve emerging photographic talents as finalists in the 2019 SUNSTUDIOS Emerging Photographer Award (SEPA).

Each year SEPA aims to break down the barriers photographers face in establishing a career by offering an opportunity to have work evaluated by industry leaders and commissioning agents. The free-to-enter award offers a generous and flexible $25K prize pool, available for redemption in products and services at SUNSTUDIOS including product, fine art printing, equipment hire, exhibition and studio space.

Twelve finalists across four photographic categories will feature in a finalist exhibition opening September 19 at the Atrium Gallery, SUNSTUDIOS Sydney where the winner, runner up and highly commended will be announced. The exhibition continues until October 6 before travelling to SUNSTUDIOS Skylight Gallery in Melbourne from November 7-19.
