About the Prize

We are a small group of volunteers at Hallidays Point NSW and we like to support the visual arts.  When we thought about organising a photographic competition and prize, we didn't want to limit the entrants or their photographic interests to just our little patch of the coast. We decided to open the Prize to anyone in NSW or the ACT who's 16 or older. We also decided that we wouldn't limit the places from where images were captured or impose a theme.

We want to celebrate aspiring photographers, wherever their eye may take them. We also want to make the Prize worthwhile: the Judge will award three $1,000.00 prizes.

And here we are. Welcome to the inaugural Focal Point 2024 Photography Prize.

About Black Head Bazaar Inc
organiser of the Prize

Black Head Bazaar Inc runs the popular Black Head Bazaar markets at Hallidays Point. We use the money we raise from the markets to undertake projects that improve the environment, and promote cultural activities, in Hallidays Point. The Focal Point 2024 Photography Prize is one of our projects. 

We recently completed the Art Wall at the rear of the Hallidays Point Library that showcases work from several Manning Valley artists. We also support local groups and have partnered over many years with Midcoast Council on projects to improve the environment and community spaces at Hallidays Point. 

During 2024, we will bring live music performances to the beautiful Chapel of Light at Tallwoods Village.

Contact us if you have any questions or problems with the entry form.
