Head On Alternative Portrait prize 2009



Well, what wonderful night of nights at the Centre for Contemporary Photography in Paddington we had last night. Jennifer Nagy and popped up to the big smoke last night for a rush trip to be a part of the opening and award presentation. I missed out by winning by a whisker but it doesnt matter as it was so great just to be there with some amazing photographers and the exhibition is fantastic. George Negus opened the exhibition and there were hundreds of people spilling out onto Oxford st. Lee Grant was another Canberra person to be a finalist as well as Graham Monro and PeterEastway, so I felt proud to be in great company!

Now back to reality to catch up on my work!!!

Hi Hilary,
I went along to the floor talks at the ACP on Saturday and heard about how close you came to winning!
Congratulations on your entry, it's an amazing photo and you can really get a sense of the friendship you shared with Billy.
