Featuring recent works by over 250 photo-based artists from across the country, the Summer Salon is testament to the ongoing popularity and diversity of contemporary photographic practice. The Salon's dynamic mix of styles, subjects and mediums recommends it as one of Australia's most significant and well-renowned photographic award exhibitions.
Celebrating the latest developments in photo-based practice, the Salon is an annual national event, now in its ninth year. An open-entry exhibition and competition, the Salon is supported by leaders in the photographic industry. Sponsors award over $3800 worth of prizes on the opening night to the best entries in nine categories.
In 2002, the Nikon Summer Salon presents a unique catalogue of work in analogue and digital photography, video installation, computer interactives, and post-photographic mediums. Incorporating a diversity of techniques and themes, the Salon attracts entries from a broad range of artists, from young and emerging practitioners to students, amateurs, and professionals.
