The CCP Documentary Photography Award (formerly the Leica / CCP Documentary Photography Award) is a biennial showcase of contemporary Australian documentary photography. Since the inaugural exhibition in 1997, this event has grown in profile and significance. It represents a unique, national initiative in support of documentary photography, providing a rare opportunity to assess the themes, styles and ideas that characterise this fascinating genre. The exhibition demonstrates the breadth of contemporary approaches to documentary practice from traditional black and white narratives through to vibrant colour recordings all of which have been achieved without digital manipulation.

The CCP Documentary Photography Award is part of the Academy Gallery National Exhibition Program.
