This award allows photographers and photo media artists to submit a series of works responding to the Biennale premise Past. Tense. Now. The six finalists, selected by an international jury of leading curators and gallery directors, are then provided with a unique exhibition opportunity.
Finalists include Pierfrancesco Celada [HKG], Michelle Chan [HKG] Aakriti Chandervanshi [IND], Liss Fenwick [AUS], JinQin Luo [CHN] and Moe Suzuki [JPN].
Judges will award the acquisitive first prize of $10,000 to an overall winner. A $1,000 People’s Choice Award winner will be announced at the conclusion of the exhibition, as voted by the public during the exhibition period.
This award is proudly supported by Alane Fineman.
