Exhibition Description

The Head On Student Prize, one of Australia's largest photography competitions, recognizes innovations in photography by Australian K—12 Students: the next generation of Australia's emerging artists. The fourth edition of the Head On Student Prize demonstrates an experimental approach to the photographic medium.
