She describes the photograph as: “It was hot down at the river. Jax waded into the water, his mum yelling at him to come back and get into the photo. Four siblings, all tired from the night before, looked at me through my lens. I remembered what it was like to feel as though everything my parents asked me to do was a burden, and I knew that later in life Mikayla and her brothers would be grateful for these moments together.”

In 2024, the winner of the National Photographic Portrait Prize will receive a cash prize of $30,000 and Canon equipment valued at $20,000 courtesy of the Gallery’s Imaging Partner, Canon Australia.

The artist who receives the most votes in the People’s Choice Award will be awarded $10,000 cash courtesy of the Calvert-Jones Foundation as well as a prize pack from EIZO.
