The Adelaide Law School’s Images of Justice Photographic Competition and Exhibition has come to a close for another year. The exhibition which was run in conjunction with Art and Heritage Collections included 30 finalist artworks and was open from the 18th October to the 1st November. Prize winners were announced at a special exhibition awards night event on Friday 25th October held at the University.
The photographic competition is a community engagement initiative that challenges entrants to capture the essence of justice and truth through the lens of a camera. We had many great entries this year and we thank all those who participated in the competition and those who visited the exhibition.
The featured artist for the 2013 competition was Dr Bob Brown (former Senator for Tasmania), who’s artworks were included in the exhibition. Dr Bob Brown also visited the exhibition on Friday the 18th of October for the exhibition opening and a Cultural Musing session organised by the Art and Heritage Collections.
With the competition now in its second year, it was great to see so much involvement and support. There were over 200 votes for the People’s Choice winner this year.
The prize winners images can be viewed on the Images of Justice webpage.
