COVID-19 Update

The Head On Photo Festival team has been regularly checking updates regarding the coronavirus pandemic, and we are making plans to best protect the public, our artists, volunteers and staff.

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. We will then work to present a scaled-back physical festival later in the year.

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.

At this stage, some smaller galleries in Sydney still plan to present printed exhibitions in association with Head On Photo Festival as scheduled in May 2020, and we will promote these online including in a downloadable Festival catalogue.

We will continue to communicate with artists and galleries about the Festival events in May and later in the year while these plans are being finalised.

With the support of our wonderful sponsors, our devoted team is currently working hard to deliver the best online and physical festival we can, so keep an eye out for updates!

Thank you to everyone for your understanding and support at this challenging and uncertain time.

Howard Davis: And The Oscar Goes To … Parasite

For its deliciously dark wit and genre-bending ingenuity, Bong Joon-ho's latest movie has just won four out of a potential six Academy Awards, including Best Screenplay and Director. Only ten foreign-language films have previously been nominated for Best Picture and none have won before. More>>


Howard Davis: 1917's 1,000 Yard Stare

Sam Mendes has created a terrible and barbarous trek, one that we appreciate all the more for being catapulted right into the midst of this ear-splitting melee from the film's opening sequence. More>>
