Australia & Italia // Foto & Photos was a photographic competition which aimed to bring together visions of Italy and Australia, each seen from the other’s point of view.
There were two thematic categories in the competition, which could be freely interpreted:
1) Italy through Australian eyes – images of Italy.
2) Australia through Italian eyes – images of Australia.
The competition sought to encourage dialogue about Italy and Australia by looking at how each sees the other, and through this dialogue, to encourage debate about cross-cultural communication and understanding.
The judging panel was: Naomi Cass - Director - Centre for Contemporary Photography, Sarina Lirosi - Visual Artist and Lecturer, Photography Studies College and Brian Reberger - Artist and Photographer.
