Published in 2013, the 100 Views of Canberra project exists in two formats; as a book and as a collection of exhibition quality prints, showcasing the work of over 100 photographers.

A 2015 PhotoAccess members' exhibition
Our upcoming members exhibition On Film aims to celebrate and explore the possibilities and parameters of film. Shooting on film is often seen as a lost art, but many photographers and photo-based artists still engage with film in their work, whether by using traditional or alternative darkroom processes, pinhole cameras, black-and-white aesthetics, or moving-image works. Even digital photography retains a relationship to the legacy of film. In this exhibition, we invite members to consider the role of film, and to creatively address the theme through film-based photography, or photo-based artwork referencing film.
We encourage members to take advantage of our darkroom and courses in making their work, or book in for a darkroom coaching session. We will also be running a darkroom course to coincide with On Film, encouraging members to rekindle their engagement with the mercurial world of darkroom processing.
On Film will run from 29 January to 22 February 2015. Completed online entry forms and a payment of $30 are due by Tuesday 13 January 2015. Click here to enter.
