Australia & Italia // Foto & Photos

Australia & Italia // Foto & Photos is a photographic competition which aims to bring together visions of Italy and Australia, each seen from the other’s point of view.

There are two thematic categories in the competition, which can be freely interpreted:
1) Italy through Australian eyes – images of Italy.
2) Australia through Italian eyes – images of Australia.


Organised by the Istituto Italiano di Cultura Melbourne, the competition is open to professional and non-professional photographers living in Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, Tasmania at the time of submission.

The competition seeks 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.

Entry to the competition is free and individuals may submit a maximum total of three images.

Total prize money: $1000.

Entries close 12:30pm on Friday 16 May 2014.


The winning, highly commended and other selected images will be part of an official exhibition at the Istituto Italiano di Cultura Melbourne.
