Founded in 2004 our programs represent a wide range of interests within the photographic arts while preserving excellence and a critical perspective.
As one of the leading photo-media institutions in Australia and with the support of our local community, the QCP endeavours to promote nationally and internationally a greater understanding and appreciation of the artistic and cultural legacy of contemporary Australian practitioners.
The QCP is supported by a highly committed group of sponsors, government institutions and volunteers. These include the Queensland Government and PIMCO.
Founded by a group of practicing artists the QCP's partnerships and provision of educational and research resources have been strengthened since 2006 with the launch of the biennial Queensland Festival of Photography. This community effort has intensified and widen the presence of the medium in institutional collections and since its inception has provided new venues, audiences and spaces for the artists to showcase their work.
