AUSSIE STREET was established in 2017 by a group of like-minded photographers from around Australia who were brought together by their mutual passion for the genre of street photography. Together we aim to promote, create awareness about, and be proactive in fostering events that serve the street photography community in Australia. AUSSIE STREET is not-for-profit and strives to give back to the street photography community within Australia and to connect it with other street photography communities around the globe.
AUSSIE STREET is the first dedicated Australian street photography festival. Its initial programme at Head On 2018 included a featured exhibition at a leading Sydney gallery, a workshop, and a nationwide search concluding with the inaugural AUSSIE STREET Awards selected by world renowned street photographers, including the legendary Melbourne photographer Jesse Marlow. As a featured part of the Head On Photo Festival in 2018, AUSSIE STREET engaged the diverse and exponentially growing street photography community on both local and international levels.
AUSSIE STREET 2019
After a tremendously successful inaugural event in 2018, AUSSIE STREET is pleased to announce that it will return in 2019 for an international festival to be held in Sydney. With both local and international competitions, exhibitions, artist-talks, and workshops planned, AUSSIE STREET will bring Australian Street photography to the world’s stage by connecting local and international street photography communities. The festival will mark AUSSIE STREET's place among the growing global calendar of events that celebrate and promote street photography.
AUSSIE STREET presents Australia’s best contemporary street photography from around the country. With work from an array of photographers, we aim to show the diversity, strangeness, and wonder of everyday life in contemporary Australia.
