The Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Photography Award exhibition honours the philanthropy of Mrs Win Schubert AO (1937-2017). The Award is a touchstone of contemporary photographic practice in Australia, and an exciting platform for established and emerging photographers to showcase their work.
The Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Photography Award (JUWSPA), introduced in 2002, is considered one of the most important awards for contemporary Australian photographic practice. The exhibition showcases a selection of finalists, in a stunning display where established photographers are presented alongside emerging talent. The resulting exhibition is a reflection of contemporary practice that examines diverse themes and approaches. JUWSPA captures the energetic evolution of the photographic medium as a means of creative expression with photography arguably being one of the most dynamic and embracing mediums in contemporary visual art.
The Award will be judged by Cherie McNair, Director & CEO, Australian Centre for Photography.
