The Ballarat International Foto Biennale Martin Kantor Portrait Prize is both an exhibition and award for a photographic artwork of a significant Australian. This must be a portrait of a living individual distinguished in art, letters, science, sports or politics. There is a simple three-step process to enter:
The Dara Foundation has graciously sponsored this award in memory of the late Martin Kantor. Kantor was a photographer and philanthropist who was known for his arresting portraits of famous musicians and artists like Iggy Pop, Howard Arkley, painter Adam Cullen and conceptual artist Dale Frank. His image of Mark Seymour, the lead singer of Hunters and Collectors, was used by the band for an album cover and is a classic representation of Australian rock and roll. Kantor founded the well-known St Kilda gallery Brightspace and was a strong supporter of indigenous and environmental causes.
