Melbourne artist VALERIE SPARKS has won the 2016 William and Winifred Bowness Photography Prize with her work Prospero's Island – North East featuring one of Australia’s most iconic landscapes.

The MGA Foundation would also like to extend their congratulations to the three recipients of the Colour Factory Honourable Mention awards: PHAEDRA BARNES, STEPHEN DUPONT and TAJETTE O’HALLORAN.

The People’s Choice Award is hotly contested, so make sure you cast your vote before the announcement at the close of the exhibition on Sunday 16 October. The People’s Choice Award is supported by Dinosaur Designs, with three $500 vouchers for three lucky voters and the MGA Foundation awards $1000 to the winning photographer.

This year we have nine finalists participating in our artist talks, so please come along and show your support!
