The Mono Awards 2023 presented by SanDisk: Winners Announced!
14 September 2023
We’re delighted and honoured to present the winners of The Mono Awards 2023, presented by SanDisk.
Now in its fifth year, the annual competition continues to draw the cream of the crop of our region’s black and white photographers.
This year, a wonderfully camouflaged leopard photographed in India by Tony Sernack, a cleverly composed street photograph by Tebani Slade, and a ‘simple but complex’ image of a grass tree by Mark Ditcham, have shared honours in the competition, which saw photographers compete for $12,000 in cash and prizes across three categories, People, Places and Animals.
More than 4,000 images were entered in the competition this year.
We’re hugely grateful to our star-studded judging panel, made up of Anthony McKee, Dan Rule, Justine Ellis, Alex Cearns OAM, Andrea Bruce, Chris Budgeon, Meg Hewitt, Jay Collier, Matt Palmer, William Long, Mike Langford and Jackie Ranken, who had the challenging task of choosing our winners this year.
We also want to thank our amazing sponsors Sandisk, without which we couldn’t run The Mono Awards. Your support is greatly appreciated.
From Friday, People's choice voting will kickoff on The Mono Awards Facebook page. This is your chance to vote for your favourite images, so make sure you vote for yours.
The Top 40 images in each category will be published in the latest issue of Australian Photography magazine which will be available in newsagents and digitally on Zinio next week.
Finally, a huge thank you to you, our amazing entrants. Even after five years of running the competition, your work continues to excite and inspire us, showing that even with just black and white to work with, there are endless ways to work with mono.
We hope you enjoy our winners and finalists as much as we do.
