Now in its tenth year, AddOn is a non-competitive, anonymous, photographic exhibition curated by Charles McKean and Festival Director Moshe Rosenzveig OAM.
As one of the core events of Head On Photo Festival, AddOn showcases an amazingly diverse and exciting range of square images, taken by more than 100 photographers spanning professionals, artists, enthusiasts, celebrities and politicians.
AddOn is an ideal entry point for photographers to be more involved in this year’s Head On Photo Festival.
Shown without any titles or photographer credits, viewers interpret the images at face value and bring their own meanings to them.
After the exhibition, every participant receives (at random) one print from the exhibition for each of their entries.
All funds received through the entry fees go towards staging the exhibition, the participants’ return prints, and the vast range of free activities which the Head On Photo Festival mounts annually.
