CCP 2024/25 Expression of Interest Applications


Apply now via our online form.

EOI closes Friday 23 June, 2023

CCP is seeking expressions of interest from artists to participate in our curated exhibition program in 2024/25. We are reaching out to gain the best understanding of lens based practice being undertaken today. We ask that you simply share your most compelling project, current work, or exhibition proposal with us for consideration. Selected artists will work with the CCP team and be provided with an artist fee to develop their projects for inclusion in CCP’s 2024/25 exhibition program. 

Who Can Apply?

EOIs are accepted from artists and collaborators from all career levels, from emerging to established artists. 

CCP welcomes applications from those with culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, LGBTQIA+ practitioners and people with lived experience of disability. 

Proposals from independent curators or partnership projects from peer institutions can be forwarded at any time to CCP Director Daniel Boetker-Smith.

Please note that CCP receives many more EOIs than we are able to support. Due to high demand, CCP staff are not able to offer feedback to unsuccessful applicants. 

About CCP

Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP) is Australia’s premiere space dedicated to the public engagement and presentation of contemporary lens-based practice. Located in Melbourne’s culturally diverse and vibrant Fitzroy; land of the Wurundjeri people and part of the Kulin Nation, CCP draws a broad onsite audience of over 90,000 visitors per year. CCP further engages the community through participation in festivals and events, and the touring of exhibitions to regional Victorian venues, interstate, and abroad. 

CCP plays a pivotal role in the development of photographic art practice and discourse with photography. Through exhibitions, public programming, education and publishing, CCP places contemporary Australian photography, video and expanded photographic practice within a historical and international context. CCP supports Australian artists by providing exhibition opportunities for early-career practitioners, educational experiences for aspiring creatives, commissioned research projects for mid-career artists, and opportunities for established artists to push the boundaries of their practice.
