The inaugural Mosman Photography Awards are open for entries, and we know there’s many a local shutterbug who should be showcasing their skills. It’s open to young and old – so grab the camera!


Open to amateur photographers who are Australian or NZ residents, the awards aim to encourage the use of photography as a creative medium for the making of traditional and contemporary images. There are both youth and open awards, and the categories have been adapted to suit requirements for social distancing.

The judges represent some of Australia’s top photographic talents and a wealth of experience in judging, including two grand masters of photography (as adjudicated by the Australian Institute of Professional Photography).

The previously announced Awards Event has been cancelled due to the social isolation measures introduced by the State and Federal Government. Winners will be announced by email and through social media outlets, with a display of winning entries hosted on the Awards Website and Social Media.

We will be bringing you updates as the entries come in, so grab your camera or your Smartphone, encourage the kids to get involved, and see what you can achieve!
