APERTURE PRIZE: Deadline JULY 7
The purpose of the Portfolio Prize is to identify trends in contemporary photography and specific artists whom we can help by bringing their work to a wider audience. In choosing the first-prize winner and runners-up, we are looking for work that is fresh and that hasn’t been widely seen in major publications or exhibition venues.
First prize is $2,500. The first-prize winner and runners-up are featured on Aperture’s website for approximately one year. Winners are also announced in the foundation’s e-newsletter, which reaches thousands of subscribers in the photography community. To see the work of the winner and runners-up for the 2007 prize, please click here.
Please note: Due to the high volume of requests, it is not possible for Aperture’s editors to review unsolicited material outside of the Portfolio Prize competition. Thank you for your understanding.
