Smith & Singer People's Choice Award

Smith & Singer People's Choice Award

Smith & Singer (previously Sotheby’s Australia) became the proud sponsor of the People’s Choice Award in 2018. Smith & Singer is Australia's premium fine art dealership facilitating the purchase and sale of important historical, modern and contemporary Australian and international art. Their significant philanthropic support of the Bowness Photography Prize is a reflection of the national and historic importance of this prize and the MGA Foundation is profoundly grateful.

MGA invites gallery visitors, virtual and in-person, to cast a vote for their favourite artwork. The announcement of the 2020 William and Winifred Bowness Photography Prize $30,000 winner, Smith & Singer People’s Choice Award recipient of $5,000, and the Colour Factory Honourable Mentions will be celebrated at a special event to be confirmed in January 2021.

All eligible voters will go into the draw to win one of three prize packs. Votes are limited to one vote per person and must include contact details in the entry.
