National Photographic Portrait Prize

So I was at work the other day just doing my thing and a letter arrived for me on my desk, something from a photo agency perhaps? a invoice? no no... It was a little from my mum... Well a vintage postcard to be more accurate (what can i say she likes to send me random things)

My mum hasn't quite mastered the art of cutting and pasting links and getting the Internet work for you, so when she saw a ad in a Melbourne newspaper calling for entries into the National Photographic Portrait Prize instead of doing what most people would do (go to the website and fwd on the link) my mum cut out the aforementioned ad, folded it carefully, carried it around in her purse for a week until she stumbled across a photocopier, made a copy and posted it in my merry direction with a note that said something along the lines of "check this out cupcake" yes yes... my mum calls me cupcake... but that's not the point, the is that the National Photographic Portrait Prize looks a bit of alright, its accessible to all and entering is easy!

Find out more about it here! Applications don't close until November and both digital and film submissions are welcome!
