Galah's Regional Photography Prize

Help us launch the Galah Regional Photography Prize.

Tickets available here.

Celebrate contemporary photography from regional Australia at the opening night party for the Galah Regional Photography Prize on Friday 10 November, 2023, at the M|Arts Precinct in Murwillumbah.

Preview the exhibition of 40 finalists and make a toast as we announce the winners of the $27,500 prizes.

There'll be dancing and the best of food and drinks. All we need is you to help us grow this event into a prestigious annual prize that can have a big impact on the careers of photographers living in regional Australia.

  • Food Bistro Livi
  • Drinks Husk Distillery and Tyrrells Wine
  • Music The Versace Boys
  • Charity Partner Country Education Foundation
  • Venue host M|Arts Precinct

And if you are a photographer, please join us on Saturday, 11 November, 2023 for a companion event to the Galah Regional Photography Prize exhibition, all about connecting photographers with other photographers.

Hear from:

  • Photographers Tamara Dean and Lisa Sorgini in conversation with Tweed Regional Gallery director (and soon-to-be director of HOTA) Susi Muddiman.
  • Harriet McDonald from Photo Collective on putting together a body of work for a photobook.
  • And portrait photographer Hugh Stewart with his solicited and unsolicited advice on photography and life, in a part-talk, part-workshop.

We'll also put on a delicious lunch with cold beer and plenty of time to meet and chat about anything from geeky gear stuff to how much you should charge. Come one, come all.
