Following the inaugural run in 2019, the Ballarat International Foto Biennale presents the second iteration of The Fineman New Photography Award. This award places the focus on photographic artists working throughout the Asia-Pacific region, seeking to showcase work that is beginning to receive critical attention. This award allows photographers and photo media artists to submit a series of works responding to the Biennale premise Past. Tense. Now.
Six finalists were chosen by an international jury of leading curators and gallery directors, provided with a unique exhibition opportunity. Exhibiting finalists are Pierfrancesco Celada [HKG], Michelle Chan [HKG] Aakriti Chandervanshi [IND], Liss Fenwick [AUS], JinQin Luo [CHN] and Moe Suzuki [JPN].
Judges will award the first prize of $10,000 to an overall winner, with an additional prize of $1,000 awarded for the People’s Choice Award, as voted by the public throughout the exhibition period. This award is proudly supported by Alane Fineman.
