Message from the Festival Director

We recognise the extraordinary effort photographers have put into delivering Award entries and preparing exhibitions over recent months and plan to honour and celebrate this by working to create an online Head On Photo Festival and Awards.

This online version of the event will be held as scheduled from 1-17 May and will be accompanied by an exciting program of online seminars and events throughout the Festival period. 

At a time when many people will be in isolation, this digital platform will provide our audiences around the world with a variety of exciting artworks, images and activities to engage and interact with. 

With the support of our wonderful sponsors, our devoted team has worked hard to deliver the best online festival we can for our artists.

Stay well,

Moshe Rosenzveig OAM
