William and Winifred Bowness Photography Prize

On behalf of the MGA Foundation we are thrilled to announce the 2021 William and Winifred Bowness Photography Prize finalists. In the midst of lockdown the three judges – acclaimed artist Del Kathryn Barton, MGA Director Anouska Phizacklea and Director of the National Portrait Gallery, Australia, Karen Quinlan AM – met, discussed and narrowed down the strong field of entrants to the William and Winifred Bowness Photography Prize to a shortlist of 52 works to be exhibited as the 2021 edition of the prize.
