Photo Competition: capture justice through a lens

Monday, 5 January 2015

Budding and experienced photographers looking for a challenge are encouraged to enter the University of Adelaide’s 2015 Images of Justice Photographic Competition.

The competition, run in conjunction with the Adelaide Law School, University Collections and law firm, Lipman Karas, calls for entrants to capture the essence of justice through the lens of a camera.

Entries are invited from three categories: student, community and professional photographer.

Professor John Williams, Dean of the University of Adelaide’s Adelaide Law School, says the challenge is finding a creative way to represent “justice” visually.

“Art and Law are not commonly paired but now in its third year, the Images of Justice Photographic Competition is one of Adelaide Law School’s most anticipated events,” says Professor Williams.

“This photographic competition challenges the community to think about justice in a different light and translate it into a piece of photographic artwork.

“I have been highly impressed by the submissions in the previous competitions and I look forward to seeing what the community comes up with this time,” he says.

Entries are now open and competitors have until 21 January to submit their artwork.

This year’s Images of Justice Photographic Competition will be held as part of the Adelaide Fringe, with finalists’ artwork, along with pieces by featured artists (Paul Atkins, Mike Burton and Jacqui Way), exhibited during the festival.

First prize in each category will be $1000. Winners will be announced and prizes awarded at a special ceremony, which will be held in March at the University of Adelaide.
