Printed Festival - November 2020

A message from the Festival Director

No need to state how difficult this year has been for everyone, especially for those in the arts.

I am very proud of our team who within a month, created and delivered Head On(line) Photo Festival 2020 - the first online photo festival in the world as a response to COVID19 - and we were so glad to receive your fantastic feedback telling us how much you got out of the experience.

In a challenging year, we are now especially thrilled to be able to present a physical series of beautiful and topical exhibitions at iconic outdoor locations and indoors at selected venues throughout November.

This iteration of the Festival, this time in print, includes 52 exhibitions at Bondi Beach, the Paddington Reservoir Gardens and selected galleries across Sydney. We will also present encore presentations from our online Festival program.

I encourage you to support the Festival and our artists by visiting the exhibitions and by purchasing prints and books.
