Australia’s most prestigious photography event, the Head On Photo Festival was held in Sydney in May 2017, with artists from across the globe, displaying images across all genres. The Festival put together a fabulous program packed full of exciting exhibitions, workshops and talks presented by a mix of Australian and international talent.
As the major printing partner for the Festival, Print 2 Metal flew to Sydney not wanting to miss the official opening and the announcement of the winners of the Photo Awards.
The opening launch took place at UNSW Art & Design with well over a thousand photo enthusiasts in attendance and quite the party atmosphere.
Despite printing 450+ metal prints for the Festival it was only when in Sydney we really began to get a true sense of the enormity of the event. Promotional flags line a number of major streets and exhibitions at the NSW Parliament House, the Museum of Sydney, the Sydney Town Hall and Paddington Town Hall, not to mention the number of smaller galleries, hotels, museums, libraries and local businesses that are involved, certainly adds to the prestige surrounding this international event.
Congratulations to all the amazing Head On Photo Awards winners and finalists and a big thank you to everyone who entered. We are most appreciative of the opportunity to print your amazing images. Finalists images cwere displayed at:
Museum of Sydney – Head On Portrait Prize, Mobile Prize and Student Prize Exhibitions
New South Wales Parliament House – Head On Landscape Prize Exhibition
An extra special thank you to our metal suppliers, Chromaluxe who recognised the importance of Head On and the wonderful opportunity to present metal prints at their very best.
