Head On Photo Festival 5-28 May

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.

Thank you also to our other suppliers Mimaki and Sihl for their support with the printing of the Festival images onto metal.

Metal Prints at Head On

We are excited to be a major printing partner at the Head On Photo Festival to be held at various venues and galleries around Sydney throughout May 2017.

With the support of our major supplier ChromaLuxe, we will be printing most of the images displayed onto metal. ChromaLuxe is the world’s leading brand of metal print media. The 470 sublimated metal prints will truly give each photographic image an added dimensionality.

Thank you to Mimaki and Sihl who are also on board with their support to ensure all the metal prints are of the highest exhibition quality.

Our Mimaki TS300P-1800 Sublimation printer & specialised Mimaki inks together with Sihl Sublicolor paper will guarantee the transfer of high resolution photos onto metal. Without the Mimaki printer we doubt we could complete the requirements of the Head On Festival in the time frame given.

Head On, now in its 10th year, is a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting the work of photographers at all stages of career, encouraging excellence and innovation, making photography accessible to all and raising awareness of important issues through photography.

The Head On Photo Festival, Awards and Workshops offer lots to enjoy.

Exhibition Metal Prints

We’ve noticed more photographers and artists are choosing to print on metal for their exhibitions.

Chromaluxe sublimated prints are appearing in museums and galleries across the globe, as a preferred medium to display fine art.

Recent exhibitions by Cindy Sherman, Collier Schorr and Dutch artist/photographer Tjalf Sparnaay have all featured metal prints.

We are proud to have printed for award winning young indigenous artist Josh Muir for some years now. Many may know Josh for his projected work on the walls of the National Gallery of Victoria at the 2016 White Night Melbourne event.

Josh is represented by the Mars Gallery in Melbourne. In an article in the Financial Review his gallerist Andy Dinan commented that Josh’s  unique digital prints on aluminium are highly sort after.

Increasingly we have new clients looking for their work to be printed with a new and contemporary edge. It’s exciting to see them print their creative work with a finish they had never really imagined.

Contact us to discuss how our unique range of products and professional printing experience will help you to sell your art.
