Australian Photography

Australian Photography is the most trusted photo media brand in Australia.

With a heritage stretching back to 1950, our mission has always been to enhance our audience’s love of photography and help them create better images.

While we started out as a magazine, these days photographers engage with us across print, web, social media, boutique live events and our popular photo competitions, including Australasia’s largest and most prestigious contest for amateur photographers, Photographer of the Year.

Whether you’re the person behind the camera capturing family and family functions, or a diehard landscape or nature photographer, we produce relevant and insightful content to suit all interests and skill-levels.


First published in 1950, Australian Photography is the top-selling photography magazine in Australia.

Our mission has always been to help new and passionate photographers take their camera and creative skills to the next level.

Our focus is on demystifying the image making process and helping readers improve their image-making techniques and editing. We cover the latest gear and tap into a pool of some of Australia’s best photographers, who, every month, share valuable advice on how to take your image-making further.

Published monthly, Australian Photography magazine is available at newsagents, and via subscription. It is also available in a digital edition.

Photographer of the Year | The Mono Awards


Australian Photography is home to Australasia’s largest and most prestigious contest for amateur photographers, Photographer of the Year. The hotly contested competition offers cash and product prizes, and runs from June to November. The best images across eight categories – Landscape, Travel, Action, People & Portrait, Wildlife & Animal, Black and White, Junior (under 18) and Photo of the Year – are published in a special edition of Australian Photography in February.

We also host The Mono Awards, which shines a light on the very best black-and-white photography by amateur and professional photographers in Australia and New Zealand. The only competition of its type in the region, The Mono Awards culminate in the publication of special Black & White editions in the September issues of Australian Photography and Capture.

Last, but certainly not least, our free online competition attracts more than 1,000 entries each month.
