What’s all this then?
Welcome to the new-look website for the Fremantle
International Portrait Prize (FiPP).
Endorsed by the City of Fremantle, the FiPP is fast becoming
one of Australia's most prestigious photographic portrait
The competition involves the initial submission of digital
images which are then short-listed by a panel of three
independent distinguished judges.
Around 75 short-listed images are then exhibited as prints in
the Moores Building Contemporary Art Gallery, Fremantle,
followed by an Exhibition Opening event in August 2013 at
which the winners are announced.
Why should I get involved?
The FiPP promotes excellence in the art of portrait
photography at the same time as raising funds for the well
established charitable organisation, Arthritis & Osteoporosis
By participating in the FiPP you can help vital work in the
prevention and treatment of arthritis which occurs across all
age groups, from children to the elderly.
What happened last time?
The inaugural FiPP was an outstanding success in 2012.
The highlights included:
696 entries were received from 22 countries
Third place was won by a photographer in Hungary
4,432 people visited the two-week exhibition in
5,491 unique visitors used the FiPP website in 2012
(the site had 330,000 hits in the same period)
$5,962 was raised for our charity sponsors, Arthritis &
Osteoporosis WA; and
6,223 votes were cast in the online People's Choice
award after the exhibition.
Hey, where’s the (terrific) old FiPP

Winner of the $5,000 2012
By Louise Cooke [Padbury, Western
Louise says: “I met this bloke, Alan,
while photographing in the hills
around Bridgetown, WA. He zoomed
quietly across the paddocks in his
electric car, which he built himsef.
He was fascinating to chat with,
spinning all sorts of interesting ideas
and opinions in a half hour chat. A
true “Ideas Man”!! Here he holds one
of his goats, Sara, who was
abandoned at birth. Alan claimed she
was a bit of a handful at times and
loved to drive around in the
passenger seat of his car.”
