Message from the Director

Welcome to the 9th annual Head On Photo Festival.

The Festival was launched on Friday 4 May 2018 by the Minister for the Arts, Don Harwin in front of well over 2000 people.

This year, we featured another fabulous program packed full of exciting exhibitions, workshops and talks presented by a mix of Australian and international talent.

In addition to our Australian artists and creatives, we welcome international presenters and exhibiting artists Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist Paula Bronstein, leading contemporary artist Peng Xiangjie (China), Founder of Everyday Climate Change James Whitlow Delano and Festival Directors of the Asia-Pacific Photo Forum.
