Welcome to arguably one of the biggest editions of the year, Australasia’s Top Emerging Photographers. Now in its 12th year, the competition has gone from strength to strength and is acknowledged as the region’s pre-eminent platform for discovering and showcasing the work of emerging and aspiring photographers. Over the last two years, the competition has grown by a staggering 58%. And as the contest has expanded, so has the quality of the work.

This year, a total of 34 leading professional photographers and industry experts from across Australia and around the world lent their time, wisdom, and experience to help determine the winners. To them, I am extremely grateful. Turn to page 66 for the…

PROUDLY SPONSORED BY WINNER FEDERICO REKOWSKI In 2005, Sydney photographer Federico Rekowski discovered photography. But it wasn’t until almost a decade later when his sister gifted him her DSLR that he came to appreciate that there was more to photography than just taking pretty pictures. Rekowski found his voice in photography and along with it a tool to explore and to look at the world differently, one frame at a time.
