Since 2005 the Ballarat International Foto Biennale has been a force in the promotion of Australian and international photography. A two month-long festival event that immerses the historic town of Ballarat in photographic art, the Ballarat International Foto Biennale presents exhibitions of important contemporary photographers selected by leading curators in a rich artistic program.

For the second time, the Ballarat International Foto Biennale will launch The Fineman New Photography Award in 2021. This award places the focus on photographic artists working throughout the Asia Pacific region; seeking to find those whose work is beginning to receive critical attention and deserves to be seen by international audiences. A selection of up to 6 artists will receive an exhibition within the 2021 Biennale Core Program alongside other finalists, and receive support from BIFB curators in the realisation of their exhibition.

All applicants will have their submissions reviewed by an international jury of leading curators and gallery directors. Judges will award one cash prize of AUD $10,000 to an overall winner, with an extra AUD $1,000 being awarded the Peoples Choice Award, as voted by the public.

This award is proudly supported by Alane Fineman.
