Award Recipients announced July 2nd

Over the past two weeks, our committee has had the great pleasure of viewing and considering each and every submission for Stories 2021. The times we are living through feel extraordinary, and our community has again shown us the importance of reflecting this through a range of diverse, personal and important visual narratives. We feel humbled to have seen you, and heard your voices through your photography. 

We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all of those who took part in Stories 2021. Without your involvement and support, opportunities such as this wouldn’t be possible. It is our privilege to be entrusted with your work.


Since 2014, we have been immersed in the discovery of original, thought-provoking and diverse imagery. We are photographers, advocates, educators and curators working towards a collective goal of celebrating and representing the changing landscape of Australian photography.

In 2021 we will be rewarding three diverse Stories who will each receive A$3,000, a Nikon Z6 Camera kit and publication opportunities through Momento Pro. The top 30 shortlisted Stories will also be celebrated in our printed publication, the Stories Journal.

Your rights matter to us, as such copyright always and unconditionally remains with the photographer
