The Head On Portrait Prize is Australia's "major innovative showcase for Australian portrait photography." The competition is run in conjunction with its festival and aims to reflect "a vibrant, diverse cross-section of new and traditional photographic practices."
I've entered the 2012 competition with one of my favourite portraits, that of Jon Stevens performing at the North Melbourne Football Ground in Melbourne.
Information about the competition can be found on the Head On Photo Festival website.
