Partnering with the Perth Cultural Centre Screen run by the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority, WA’s fave music photography competition Kiss My Camera is back, better than ever, after being on a three-year hiatus. Finalists will be displayed multiple times each day on the massive MRA public screen in the PICA Amphitheatre, from late October and for the duration of WAMFest. The exhibition sees selected music photographs, both live and press shots, from both WA amateur and professional photographers, providing a visually tantalising snapshot of music in WA. With a record number of entries, we’re excited to announce the finalists.

We’re excited to announce Chris Webster (Best Local Shot), Kim Anderson (Best Studio Shot) and Rachael Barrett (Best Live Shot) have taken out this year’s comp!!!
Congrats, guys!
