Exclusive to HOTA, the Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Photography Award was launched in 2002 in collaboration with the Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Foundation.
An anticipated survey of contemporary photographic practice, the award plays an important role in representing the work of artists across Australia. In 2022, an additional $25,000 is earmarked to acquire works to support contemporary artists through acquisitions into the city collection.
Since the Award’s inception, 60 works have been acquired by HOTA, resulting in a celebrated collection that reflects shifts in the cultural and social landscape over two decades.
Come together to celebrate two decades of the best of contemporary Australian photography in HOTA’s next major exhibition. The Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Photography Award 2022 will present a diverse selection of works by artists working at the forefront of photographic media. On the 20th anniversary of the award, rediscover highlights from a selection of past award winners and finalists. A retrospective presented in the new HOTA Gallery for the first time, you’ll find stories and make memories from a collection that reflects shifts in the cultural and social landscape since 2002.
