The IWPOY award presentation evening will be held on 11th January 2014 and the exhibition of shortlisted and winning entries will be launched during the evening. The exhibition will be staged in the Olympus Galleries at Dimbola and will run through till sometime near the end of March.
We would also like to thank Dimbola for offering the winning photographer an exhibition in the Charles Hay Cameron Gallery at Dimbola later in 2014 during the Autumn Season. This is a great opportunity for the winning photographer and they will be working in close consultation with the Exhibitions and Collections Coordinator (E&CC), at Dimbola, to ensure this exhibition’s success.
It is essential that all 2013 IWPOY entrants are committed to working towards a high quality photographic exhibition of their work and are prepared to work with and accept guidance from the E&CC at Dimbola. This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase your work in an internationally recognised centre of photographic excellence, fingers crossed it could be you!
