DESCRIPTION

The CCP Documentary Photography Award is a biennial showcase of contemporary Australian documentary photography. Since the inaugural exhibition in 1997, this event has grown in profile and significance. It represents a unique, national initiative in support of documentary photography, providing a rare opportunity to assess the themes, styles and ideas that characterise this fascinating genre. This year's exhibition demonstrates the breadth of contemporary approaches to documentary practice from traditional black and white narratives through to vibrant colour recordings all of which have been achieved without digital manipulation. Themes range from the affects of war on US Marines through to dog shows, roller derby and the annual Miss South Sudan Australia pageant.
  
One of the 12 finalists will be awarded the $4,000 Copyright Agency Limited Cultural Fund Prize, to be announced on opening night by Sandy Grant, Chief Executive, Director Hardie Grant Publishing and Director and Chair, Copyright Agency Limited.
