Your School is Invited

Welcome to the Australian Photographic Prize

The Australian Photographic Prize (APP) is an initiative by Robyn Campbell and Karen Alsop. Combined they bring together over 45 years of experience in the professional photography industry and each is highly awarded.

With over $30,000 worth of prizes across the competitions, thanks to an extensive list of supporting sponsors, APP provides opportunities for everyone to gain recognition and receive valuable feedback.

Robyn and Karen previously served in various national and local committees within the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP). Following the unexpected closure of the 75 year professional body in late 2021, the industry experienced a significant loss. AIPP’s formerly annual Australian Professional Photography Awards (APPA) folded concurrently. As a result, the powerhouse pair of Robyn and Karen decided to bring their unique skills together to facilitate a new, inclusive awards and conference project.
