Now in its 12th year, AddOn is a non-competitive, anonymous photographic exhibition curated by Charles McKean and Festival Director Moshe Rosenzveig OAM.
As a core event of Head On Photo Festival, AddOn showcases an amazingly diverse and exciting range of square images taken by photographers spanning professionals, artists, enthusiasts, celebrities and politicians.
AddOn is an ideal entry point for photographers to become involved in this year’s Head On Photo Festival.
Since the images are shown without titles or photographer credits, viewers interpret them at face value bringing their own meanings to them.
After the exhibition, every participant receives a printed exhibition catalogue.
All funds received through the entry fees go towards staging the exhibition, exhibition catalogue and the vast range of free activities that the Head On Photo Festival presents each year.
