Desart Photography Prize

Manjal Jampijinpa/Liam Alberts, Local Warming, 26.7 x 40cm 2020 Desart Photography Prize Winner

The Desart Photography Prize provides an important platform where the Aboriginal photographer is behind the lens rather than being the observed.

The Prize emerged out of the broader Aboriginal Art Worker program that delivers opportunity for the development of technical skills and experimentation with new media.

Participating photographers provide us with an intimate insight into their community lives captured with a sense of comfort and familiarity that may only be conveyed by one who belongs
