APA is one of the most celebrated photographic competitions in Australia. Since launching in 2016 we continue to discover Australia’s most original and thought-provoking photography. We celebrate diversity and feel photography is a powerful medium for bringing people together and promoting understanding. Each year we reward emerging talent alongside some of Australia’s most established photographers.

Stories winners announced in July 2021

APA will be open again for entries in August 2021
