Founded in 1983, the MAMA Art Foundation National Photography Prize is a biennial acquisitive awards and exhibition, showcasing the best in contemporary Australian photography.
Since 1999 the MAMA Art Foundation has sponsored the Award, providing artists with an avenue to exhibit their work and the opportunity to enter into an ever-growing collection of contemporary Australian photography.
To celebrate the growing interest in photography, MAMA (Murray Art Museum Albury), through the MAMA Art Foundation now offers a major acquisitive cash prize pool of $50,000 which includes the $3,000 John & Margaret Baker Memorial Fellowship for an emerging artist.
More than 100 works by 65 established and emerging photographers, which tackle the themes of Narrative, Object, Landscape, Portrait, Documentary and Construct will be on show, and available for acquisition throughout the duration of the exhibition.
Since the award's inception, more than 90 works have been acquired by MAMA, enhancing the museum's superb collection of more than 1000 photographic works.
The MAMA National Photographic Prize exhibition continues until 7 August 2016.
