Monster Children Photo Comp Now Open for Entries; $30K in Prize Money Up For Grabs

2017 Monster Children Photo Competition from Monster Children on Vimeo.

Monster Children Magazine has today launched its seventh annual Photo Competition, and professional and amateur photographers are invited to submit entries online until November 5 to win a share of the massive $30,000 (AUD) prize pool.

In 2017 we introduce the ‘Portrait’ category to the Monster Children Photo Competition. Monster Children co-founders Chris Searl and Campbell Milligan (see also; judges) encourage entrants not to think too literally about this category - they’re not after passport photos and headshots. A portrait photo should be a representation of someone, telling a story about who they are through the eyes of the photographer.


Over the years the annual Monster Children Photo Competition has established itself as one of the most renowned youth culture photo comps in the world, with past finalists including Todd Glasser, Chris Burkard, Andrew Peters, Laura Austin, Ryan Allan and Woody Gooch.

All finalist and prize winning photographs will be featured in the 2017 Monster Children Annual, and will also be shown at exhibitions unveiling the competition winners in Sydney and Los Angeles, to coincide with the launch of the magazine in December.

The Monster Children Annual issue features some of the year’s top photography from around the globe and is officially on sale online and at selected newsstands and boutique stockists Monday December 4.
