It is with great pride that PSC announces our 2017 final year student James Bugg has been awarded the $50,000 Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize for 2018 for his portrait titled Zach.

Of James’ photography, and his subject Zach, Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize judge Jon Jones had this to say:
