The Head On Student Prize, one of Australia’s largest photography competitions, recognizes innovations in photography by Australian K—12 Students: the next generation of Australia’s emerging artists. The fourth edition of the Head On Student Prize demonstrates an experimental approach to the photographic medium. Influenced by trends in social media, digital photography and traditional photographic processes, these images provide us with a dynamic view into the future of contemporary photography.
