The prize is open to established and emerging photographers and there are no thematic restrictions. All film-based and digital work from amateurs and professionals is accepted. 

Entries to the William and Winifred Bowness Photography Prize are now open. Established by the Monash Gallery of Art (MGA) Foundation, the prize is known for promoting excellence in photography across all photographic media and stylistic genres. The prize culminates in an exhibition of the finalists at MGA, the Australian home of photography, which opens to the public on 29 September.

MGA Director Anouska Phizacklea said the prize “brings people from all over the country because they want to see what’s going on in contemporary Australian photography.”

Entries are now open, closing 11 July, with finalists to be announced 10 August.
