Contact the publisher.

This year’s CCP Salon is presented by Leica and Ilford and supported by 24 national leaders in the photographic industry. CCP Salon provides an excellent opportunity to exhibit work in a professional, high-profile context. In past years digital, analogue, moving imagery and 3D works have lined the walls of CCP. This year we are delighted to present the latest national developments in photomedia through showcasing a diverse snapshot of contemporary Australian practice.

Industry professionals will judge all entrants’ work and over $20,000.00 worth of prizes will be awarded across 29 categories. We are pleased to announce our 2015 judges, Arlo Mountford, Artist; Katrina Sedgwick, Director of the Australian Centre for the Moving Image; Pippa Milne, CCP Curator; Naomi Cass, CCP Director, Non-voting Chair. CCP Salon gallery visitors will also have the opportunity to vote in the Crumpler People’s Choice Award for the artist that creates their favourite work.

CCP Salon is an excellent opportunity for emerging and established photomedia artists to exhibit work. For all the early-bird CCP Salon entrants, the first entrant will be awarded $150 of Ilford paper. We are looking forward to receiving your Salon entries.
