National Photography Prize Junior 2024

National Photography Prize Junior 2024 is a pilot schools’ program that connects primary students with the medium of photography.

Year 6 students from NSW and VIC were invited to attend a full day excursion comprising a guided tour of the National Photography Prize and a hands-on studio photography activity. The students looked at the work of finalist artists Ali McCann, Ioulia Panoutsopoulos and Skye Wagner who each engage in studio-based practices to construct imagery. In response, the students explored drawing, painting and collage to construct a setting for a personal object which they then photographed.

A public exhibition of the students’ photographs will be on display in the Learning Lane for the remainder of the National Photography Prize (closing 1 September 2024).

The 2024 participating schools are Lavington Primary, Wodonga Public and Jindera Primary.

MAMA would like to thank Camera House Albury for their generous support of the program. MAMA acknowledges the MAMA Art Foundation for their continued championing of the National Photography Prize.
