Photographers, photo-enthusiasts and photo-makers of all descriptions and disciplines in all parts of the world were invited to submit images for exhibition in the IPF Photo Prize 2016 – the premier event for the IPF 2016 program – and here’s where we’ll be showing them!

After four years of presenting one of Melbourne’s largest and most diverse prints-based competitions and auction, we’re switching things up a little for 2016 …

This year, submissions were made online and will be printed by IPF, Thirds Fine Art Printing, and Canson Infinity.

Exhibited entries will be in the running to win $5,000 worth of prizes in the following categories:
