    Moran contemporary photographic prize 2011

    I have had a request to promote the MORAN CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHIC PRIZE 2011 on Ausphotography.

    So here is the announcement direct from the Moran Arts Foundation

    ***********************************************************************
    MORAN CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHIC PRIZE 2011
    OPEN SECTION

    CALL FOR ENTRIES

    $110,000 PRIZE MONEY

    CLOSING DATE FOR ENTRIES TUESDAY 1 MARCH 2011


    The Moran Arts Foundation invites photographers to submit photographic works in competition for the Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize 2011 - Australia's richest photographic prize.

    Prize monies have increased for the Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize 2011 and will be awarded as follows:

    $100,000 1ST PRIZE FOR THE BEST PHOTO BASED WORK

    $10,000 HIGHLY COMMENDED WORKS (up to 5 X $2,000 PRIZES)

    A maximum of 40 works will be selected as finalists. These works will be exhibited at the State Library of New South Wales 18th April until 10th July 2011 before touring Australia for a period of up to 12 months.

    Entrants in the Open Section are asked to interpret the theme "Contemporary Life in Australia" with an emphasis on Australians going about their day-to-day lives within their environment. The prize promotes contemporary photography and excellence in photo-based work, including all types of analogue and digital photography. Images can be either colour or black and white.

    The selection of finalists and the awarding of prizes will be determined by award winning Australian photographer, Samantha Everton.

    Closing time and date for entries is 5pm Tuesday 1 March 2011. All entries (regardless of whether they have been created by an analogue or digital camera) must be received as a digital file(s) uploaded to the Moran Prizes website by this time and date.

    There's some great shots selected as finalists there. And a lot of them prove that there are no rules to be followed to be successful in someone's eyes.
    Attitude is everything!

    Cheers, Paul

    One of my shots is amongst the entrants, but didn't get any further, but thats the way photographic comps go, depends on the judge and the mood. Very weird selection of shots that made the final, did anyone hear who the judge was? Seemed like nude was one of the criteria for this particular judge, as were complete candid/stalker type shots. Notice that anything to do with rural Australia struggled, some great shots there too.

    I wouldn't mind being a part of those naked girls daily lives.
    I have seen a lot better images on here. There was some good ones, but there was also a lot that needed a lot to be desired.

    The primary schools photos were awesome....such a talented mob of kids in Oz! However some of the others didn't tickle me......I don't get the one with the two girls hanging off the clothesline........which was I supposed to be looking at? the clothesline? their faces or the hairy armpits?
