Sweet Suburbia: 2020 Photography Competition

View the online catalogue / Read the essay / View the photo gallery

The 2020 DESIGN Canberra photography competition responded to the theme of ‘This is Suburbia’ to celebrate the suburban identity of Canberra.

A panel of judges which included Beatrice Smith (Editor, HerCanberra), Davey Barber (Photographer, 5 Foot Photography) and Darren Bradley (Photographer) selected six finalists who will have their photographs on display alongside the 100 semi-finalists. These photographs present intriguing perspectives and diverse responses to our city’s suburban identity. Don’t miss the opportunity to see these beautiful photographs in person throughout the festival at East Space.

DESIGN Canberra acknowledges the Ngunnawal people as the traditional custodians of the ACT and surrounding areas. We honour and respect their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this country and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region. We aim to respect cultural heritage, customs and beliefs of all Indigenous people.
